Stagecoach 2013: Ashton Kutcher apparently involved in altercation with security guard, per TMZ
INDIO – Actor Ashton Kutcher was apparently involved in altercation with a security guard at the Stagecoach country music festival, according to gossip site www.TMZ.com, but an Indio police spokesman had no information on the incident.
Kutcher, according to TMZ, was in the VIP area sometime Saturday night to watch Nick 13 and Dwight Yoakam when a female fan went to say hello to him and a security guard apparently stepped in to shove him and the fan. Nick 13 performed from 3:55 to 4:55 p.m. while Yoakam played from 6:45 to 8:15 p.m. on the Palomino Stage.
Kutcher and the security guard then started shoving each other, but before the guard could eject Kutcher he left on his own, according to TMZ.
Indio police spokesman Ben Guitron said media had contacted him about the incident but neither the promoter of the festival, Goldenvoice, or Kutcher had filed any sort of a report so he had no further information outside of what TMZ reported.
“A lot of people have called us (from the media) but (neither party) told us,” Guitron said. If either party presses charges, then Indio police would follow up with a report, Guitron said.
Goldenvoice spokespeople at the festival had no comment to the TMZ report.
Guitron said 52 arrests on Friday and 40 on Saturday, primarily for alcohol related offenses such as false I.D., minors with alcohol and intoxication.
Additionally, Guitron wanted Stagecoach fans today to drink plenty of water on the final day of thethree-day country music festival, with temperatures to reach more than 100 degrees.
