A decorated Los Angeles police captain has sued Elton John, claiming he was repeatedly groped by the singer while he was working off duty on the Grammy winner’s security detail. The lawsuit filed by Capt. Jeffrey Wenninger alleges the groping and sexually suggestive comments by John occurred in early 2014. Orin Snyder, an attorney for John’s Rocket Entertainment Group, denied the allegations. “This baseless lawsuit is brought by a disgruntled former security officer seeking to extract an undeserved payment,” Snyder said in a statement. “These claims are patently untrue and contradicted by numerous previous statements made by this plaintiff.”

BUS DUST-UP

An Atlanta man was charged with disorderly conduct and public intoxication after police say he boarded a tour bus for the rock band Third Eye Blind and got into a fight with the group’s manager. The Athens Banner-Herald reported that the dust-up happened Saturday morning, following the group’s concert in downtown Athens. A police report said Kevin Knoblich, 28, told officers he just wanted to tell band members that he enjoyed the show.
