Belly Up Aspen Sued After Concert Mishap


ASPEN (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — An Aspen resident has filed a lawsuit against Belly Up Aspen and Beatnuts rapper Psycho Les, claiming that she was injured after Pyshco Les allegedly attempted to drag her up on stage against her will during a March 18, 2009 Beatnuts gig at the club.

According to the Aspen Times, the suit claims that an allegedly visibly intoxicated Psycho Les AKA, Lester Fernandez attempted to pull Scharrer up onto the stage, against her will and that in the process, she fell, “violently hitting her leg on the sharp edge of the stage's front,” the suit says.

Resultantly, Kristen Sharrer is seeking more than $100,000 in damages, claiming that she suffered nerve damage and permanent scarring. The suit alleges that the club was negligent for over-serving Fernandez and failing to provide adequate security. The suit also level charges of battery, outrageous conduct and false imprisonment against Fernandez.

"Belly Up knew that Psycho Les had become visibly intoxicated during the Beatnuts' performance on the night in question," the suit read. "Belly Up staff or management knowingly and willfully continued to allow Psycho Les to consume alcohol on the stage during the show despite his condition of being then visibly intoxicated."

Michael Goldberg, the club's owner declined to discuss the ongoing legal issue. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
