Think twice the next time you get the urge to climb up on a stage and dive off during a concert.
You could get sued.
A former Aspen woman is suing a Virginia man and an Aspen concert venue after the man allegedly dove off the stage during a concert last year and landed on her, according to the Aspen Daily News website.
Abbie Wade filed a lawsuit Oct. 15 in Pitkin County District Court and it lists Andrew Stewart and Belly Up Aspen as defendants, according to the Daily News. Stewart was on stage during a Talking Heads cover band concert and dove into the crowd, injuring Wade, who apparently suffered neck injuries.
Stewart was cited initially and pleaded guilty in July to assault and battery. He was ordered to pay $2,374 in restitution. Now depending on the latest lawsuit, it could be more. Wade is seeking more than $100,000 in punitive damages, attorney fees and penalties.
Stewart told told police that he dove off the stage after a dare from friends and was going to video-tape the action and post it to Facebook.
A manager at Belly Up declined to comment to the Daily News. Belly Up hosts more than 300 live concerts each year, according to its website.
