Tommy Lee Being Sued For Hitting Photographer
March 7, 2013
Photographer Freddy Hernandez, a resident of Palm Beach County, has filed a lawsuit against Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee.
The lawsuit alleges that on July 7, 2012, Tommy Lee was at a public beach in Palm Beach County, Florida. Freddy Hernandez was also a visitor at the same beach, taking pictures of Mr. Lee. The lawsuit alleges that Tommy Lee touched and/or struck Hernandez without his permission, by hitting his camera, while Hernandez was holding said camera — as a result, Mr. Hernandez suffered injuries.
Attorney Robert Dixon of the Law Offices of Robert Dixon, a personal injury law firm, is representing the plaintiff.
Not letting a frivolous lawsuit slow him down, Tommy Lee and Motley Crue will begin their biggest headlining Canadian run ever on April 20th, with special guests Big Wreck. A seven US date tour, beginning on May 16th in Bangor, will follow. For a complete list of Motley Crue tour dates visit www.motley.com.
Hailing from Los Angeles, Calironia, the quartet — Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee — has commandeered the rock pantheon for over 30 years.
In that time, they have accumulated worldwide album sales exceeding 80 million, seven platinum or multi-platinum albums, 22 Top 40 mainstream rock hits, six Top 20 pop singles, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, three Grammy nominations for Best Hard Rock Performance and countless sold out tours across the globe, playing to millions of fans.
The first rock band in history to have completed an epic sold-out Las Vegas residency at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Motley Crue is best known for continuing to reinvent not only their live show (with mind blowing elements such as Tommy Lee’s 360 drum roller coaster) and music (a brand new song entitled “Sex” was released in the summer of 2012), but remain on the forefront of entertainment via cutting edge social media interaction.
The band was featured in the award winning Super Bowl commercial for the KIA Optima in 2012. Motley Crue’s New York Times bestselling memoir, The Dirt, is currently being adapted into a major motion picture.
