STUTTGART, Germany (AP) -- Robbie Williams suffered bruises but was otherwise uninjured after a man pushed the pop star from the stage during a concert, a spokesman for his record label said Thursday.
The former Take That star fell just over 5 feet into the pit below the stage during his concert in Stuttgart Wednesday night, after a young man who police said was psychologically disturbed got onto the stage and pushed him from behind.
Williams picked himself up and returned to the stage, said Frank Bender, a spokesman for EMI records. After a few jokes, he continued the concert.
"He will continue the tour as planned on Friday in Paris," Bender said.
Downey case continued
INDIO, Calif. (AP) -- Actor Robert Downey Jr.'s drug case was continued to allow defense attorneys to gather evidence, prosecutors said.
Downey, charged with possession of cocaine and a tranquilizer, faces more than four years in prison if convicted.
Downey, 35, was arrested on Nov. 25 at a Palm Springs hotel after police received an anonymous 911 tip.
He was released from prison in August after serving about a year for violating probation on drug arrests dating back to 1996.
The actor, who was nominated for a best actor Oscar for the 1992 movie "Chaplin," won a Golden Globe award in January for his supporting role on the Fox TV show "Ally McBeal."
Johnson says paper unfair
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- "Nash Bridges" star Don Johnson accused the San Francisco Chronicle of treating him unfairly in columns about a police report alleging that he made lewd comments to a woman in a sushi bar.
On his Web site, www.donjohnson.com, the actor posted letters from his attorney and spokesman lambasting Chronicle columnists Phillip Matier and Andrew Ross.
Johnson initially wanted the letters published as a large ad in the Chronicle, but decided Tuesday to withdraw the ad and publish them on the Web site instead.
Chronicle executives said they would have rejected the ad, which would have cost $18,000.
Phil Bronstein, the Chronicle's executive editor, said the columnists' reporting was solid. He also said the ad suggests that Matier and Ross intentionally withheld the woman's name in the Feb. 7 article, while it was police who did not release the name.
"We really don't want to accept an ad that is knowingly false," Bronstein told The Associated Press.
