Dave Navarro attacked by 'fan'
16:30 11 January 2006
Carmen Electra's husband, rocker Dave Navarro, narrowly escaped serious injury when a furious fan smashed up his dinner table after he refused to pose for a photo with him.
The musician, who was eating a meal at the bar he owns with Tommy Lee and DJ Paul Oakenfold, was showered in glass during the violent incident after the 7ft man upturned his table in a rage.
Navarro - who is tee total - claims as well as refusing to star in the photo he had also declined a round of alcoholic drinks from the fan.
He is quoted in America's New York Post newspaper as saying: "A seven-foot-tall, five-feet-wide guy asked me to take a picture with his sister and I politely declined. But after I refused a round of shots the man sent over, things turned ugly.
"The guy then loses it and turns over all the drinks and plates on my table, and they all go flying into the air and shatter as they crash into each other and onto the table, causing a rain of glass to fall upon me and my friends.
"Glass goes into my hair, clothes and slightly cuts up my arm."
Navarro's bodyguards calmed the man before escorting him off the premises.
