Drunk Mick Jagger impersonator jumps onto stage and starts bar brawl

"Sir Mick Jagger" was thrown out of a Florida bar on Monday night after interrupting a band’s performance and generally making a show of himself.

But, you won’t be shocked to hear, it wasn’t the world-famous Rolling Stones frontman but a somewhat deluded, and very drunk, Florida man named Eugene Bingham.

Bingham, 59, had allegedly been kicked out of Yabba’s bar in Naples for trying to start fights three times before finally taking the stage while a local band was performing.

One woman flagged down a police car and told officers, “a drunk male in a red shirt is yelling at people claiming he is Mick Jagger.”

At that point, Bingham left the bar and was spotted by officers in nearby Cambier Park.

Officers tried to stop him, but he charged right into an officer and a scuffle ensued, leaving Bingham flat out on the pavement, according to his arrest report.

Even then, Street Fighting Man Bingham was in no mood to come quietly.

He told an arresting officer “don’t f*** with me, leave me the f*** alone,” while repeatedly insisting that he was the Gimme Shelter hitmaker.

When police eventually managed to wrestle him into a squad car, Bingham vomited in the vehicle while maintaining that he was, in fact, the Dartford-born singer.

WINK-TV reports that Bingham faces charges of disorderly intoxication and battery on an officer.

Apparently, "impersonating a rock legend" isn't an actual offence.

After his arrest, he wasn’t formally processed into custody for what police described as a “medical reason”.

The real Sir Mick Jagger has not been out causing chaos in bars for quite some time.

The 78-year-old star has settled down on the Caribbean island of Mustique with his girlfriend Melanie Hamrick, 35, who gave up her career as a ballet dancer and is now a full-time mum to Deveraux, her, and Sir Mick’s 4-year-old son.

“They’re an official couple,” a source said of Mick and Melanie, “he cut the strings with every other lover”.
