Dave Matthews and His Dumpage

The state of Illinois sued the Dave Matthews Band on Tuesday for allegedly dumping up to 800 pounds of liquid human waste from a bus into the Chicago River, dousing a tour boat filled with passengers.

The lawsuit accuses the band and one of its bus drivers of violating state water pollution and public nuisance laws. It seeks $70,000 in civil penalties.

3 Usually it's his crappy music he dumps on people. Now it's literally crap. Nice. He's giving back to his fans.

4 I knew he was spewing a lot of crap, but 800 lbs? That's a lot even for a political hack, which is what he's become.

5 Good Lord. I foresee some heavy duty, personal lawsuits for the band and rightly so.
