Busker attacked critic with guitar
A US busker called Bongo Jesus has been arrested after hitting a man who criticised his playing over the head with his guitar.
The busker, whose real name is Brandin Hochstrasser, 31, was playing in the street in Madison, Wisconsin, when his critic approached him.
Police spokesman Joel DeSpain said the 54-year-old homeless man had been unable to keep his thoughts about the guitar playing to himself.
"The dispute started over some questionable guitar playing," Mr DeSpain told the Cap Times.
"He went over to Bongo Jesus and provided some sort of critique which did not sit well.
"When police were called, we were advised that the musician was hitting the victim over the head with the guitar.
"At one point, he said the victim who commented about his guitar playing had been his friend... up until the time he made the comment about the guitar playing."
The dispute escalated with the busker allegedly charging at his victim, slamming a student into a wall and then wrestling with the police sergeant trying to arrest him.
Hochstrasser was eventually tasered before being arrested and charged with battery, battery to a police officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
