The All-American Rejects Guitarist Attacks Photographer At Concert

Q104 are reporting that The All-American Rejects' guitarist Mike Kennerty hit a photographer, Jimmy Davis at the band's show in Cleveland, OH last night (April 10th).

An excerpt from Q104 can be read below:

"We have learned that at last night’s All-American Rejects show in Cleveland, singer Tyson Ritter smashed a fan’s iPad and guitarist Mike Kennerty hit a local photographer Jimmy Davis.

Davis told us, 'I had no problems all the way throughout the show until about the sixth or seventh song…next thing I know I’m getting hit by the guitarist Mike in the face while shooting a picture of him. I’ve never been touched by an artist before so I was kind of really in shock at that point.'

Davis reached out to the band after the incident, saying, 'I called the Universal Music Group [ed.: their record label] contact I had and I then I also called the tour manager who immediately came and got me and whisked me backstage. That’s where Mike came out…he apologized a bunch of times.'"
