White is involved in a barfight with Stollsteimer at the Magic Stick club in Detroit. Stollsteimer receives a bloody nose and bruises to his right eye, while White receives cuts on his left hand. The altercation takes place during a record release party for Blanche. A spokesman for the Von Bondies says:
White approached Stollsteimer during the concert, physically forcing him against the speakers, and began shouting. Stollsteimer attempted to turn his head [to] face White but refused to engage in conversation. Visibly angered by Stollsteimer’s unwillingness to argue or fight, White spat into Stollsteimer’s face and punched him in the head and face repeatedly. White then forced Stollsteimer to the ground and continued his attack until White was restrained by several crowd members.
White claims he fought back in self-defense.
