One man is charged with assault after a fight at a Cooper concert in England last July. The defendant, a disabled man, is accused of infringing upon the personal space of the man next to him in the front row of the balcony -- by removing his prosthetic leg.

Punches were thrown, with Miller apparently getting the best of his opponent -- he broke his hand landing one blow. "I was trying to save my life," he told a jury. "I was trying to stop myself from getting punched over a balcony."
Which, for Cooper's fans, would have looked like part of the show.
