Once again, Argentinean singer Charly García is in trouble. The musician was detained after two Colombian actors accused him of aggression –claiming Garcia hit them with his guitar during a concert in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The incident took place last Thursday evening in a bar in Buenos Aires. While in concert, 56-year-old García got off the stage and supposedly used his guitar as a weapon and hit the two actors –both of whom are living in that country because they are under contract to work with an Argentinean producer.

The “Estoy verde” singer was detained and held in custody for four hours. It's still unknown why the singer behaved so violently. Also in the to-be-revealed category: the names of the actors who are thought to be very popular.
