A flying sheep's head hit a concertgoer and fractured his skull at a concert of metal band MAYHEM.
The band, part of Norway's death metal music scene, was carving up a dead sheep as part of its stage act when the animal's head flew off lead singer Maniac's knife and struck 25-year-old Per Kristian Hagen.
Hagen filed involuntary assault and battery charges against the band. The charges carry a maximum sentence of 6 months in prison.
Mayhem member Rune Eriksen, whose stage name is Blasphemer, said the incident was unfortunate. "The whole thing was an accident, but maybe it would be an idea for another show," he said.
