Rocker Rose admits hotel violence

Guns N' Roses singer Axl Rose has been fined after pleading guilty to violent conduct and criminal damage following his arrest in Sweden.

Rose has been released from jail after agreeing to pay a 40,000 krona (£3,000) fine, a police spokeswoman said.

He will also pay 10,000 krona (£750) damages to a security guard he allegedly bit in the leg during the incident at Stockholm's Berns Hotel.

The 44-year-old star is scheduled to perform in Oslo, Norway, on Wednesday.

Intoxicated

His group, whose hits include Welcome to the Jungle, Paradise City and Sweet Child O' Mine, played at Stockholm's Globe Arena on Monday.

Rose is believed to have visited a nightclub before the incident in the Berns Hotel lobby at about 0800 local time (0600 GMT) on Tuesday.

Police said the singer, the sole remaining original member of the chart-topping rock outfit, was "too drunk to talk" at the time and was detained until he was deemed sober enough for questioning.

"The matter is now concluded," spokeswoman Towe Hagg told the Reuters news agency.
