Two of Britney’s “Circus” tour road crew staff were arrested Wednesday night after a fight with police officers along East Carson Street in Pittsburgh’s South Side.

“According to the criminal complaint, an officer said he saw Rockey Dickey, of California, punching another man in the face. The officer said he tried to stop the fight, which is when Dickey turned and took a swing at him, knocking off his hat,” said news site

Another officer reportedly jumped in to “subdue Dickey, but Alex Montes, also from California, stepped in and placed that officer in a headlock,” the criminal complaint said.

Police claimed Dickey would not cooperate when officers tried to handcuff him. “A Taser was used to subdue him as he was kicking his legs and flailing his arms,” police said.

Montes fled the scene, but returned later for his arrest.

The victim that was assaulted, Matthew Boyle, was rushed to UPMC Mercy Hospital for injuries to his forehead and nose.

“Dickey and Montes are charged with criminal conspiracy, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. Dickey is also charged with simple assault and resisting arrest.

The men are being held on $100,000 straight bond.

Britney is scheduled to perform at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT tonight, March 26.

UPDATE: Britney’s Uncasville, CT show has been rescheduled for May 3rd.
