Adam Levine A Victim Of A Sugar Bomb While Signing Autographs!
On May 6, Wednesday just right outside the Jimmy Kimmel Live studio, a crazed fan sugar-bombed Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine. Levine was signing autographs for the fans waiting outside when the incident happened.
The Sugar singer was doing the usual rounds of autographs for the fans waiting outside of the studio. When Adam Levine got to the other side of the cordoned area, a random fan, now known as Navid Farsi, threw what was first thought of as flour at the singer. It was obvious that Adam was taken aback and that he was visibly stressed out by the situation. The white powder, which we now know is sugar, got on two of Adam’s security guys and on some other fans.
Navid Farsi was escorted by Adam Levine’s security detail outside the premises as Farsi was being booed by the crowd. Presumably because his juvenile prank against Adam Levine has cut the autograph signing short.
The perpetrator, Farsi, has now been charged with battery. A second charge, for hitting one of the security guys with sugar, has been dropped. This crazy fan will be serving up to 20 days of community service, 52 hours of counselling (which he needs obviously!) and will spend 3 years on probation. A restraining order has been issued against him and he is now prohibited from being in a 55 yard radius of the Jimmy Kimmel Live studio and is not to allowed to approach Levine at all.
This wasn’t the first time Navid Farsi has had a run in with the law because of celebrities. He allegedly threw a rock at Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in April, just two months before the incident with Adam. Why he would do that to a guy who could fold him into a napkin, is beyond me.
A rock for The Rock and sugar for the Sugar singer, Adam Levine—boy, this guy must really enjoy puns, huh?
Levine was not hurt during the incident. However, some sources have disclosed that one of the things that crossed Adam’s mind was that the white powder could be Anthrax. This would explain why he was shaking the powder off like crazy, poor guy!
In other news, Maroon 5 will be on the road again by the end of the month for their world-wide V tour. The tour will kick-off in Paris before moving through Europe, Asia and finally, Australia.
