Ozzy Osbourne threw a party, along with criminal suspects, on the night of Halloween in 2007 at North Dakota. Sheriff Paul D. Laney was on a disguise and invited 500 people with outstanding warrants to party with Osbourne at a Fargo nightclub in which Ozzy never knew about nor asked for consent.
On the night of the party, the authority managed to arrest 30 wanted criminals who appeared at the nightclub. However, the Prince Of Darkness was not impressed and was furious about being used in association with criminal activity.
“Instead of holding a press conference to pat himself on the back, Sheriff Lany should be apologizing to me for using my name in connection with these arrests. It shows how lazy this particular sheriff is when it comes to doing his job,” Osbourne expressed his displeasure in a following statement.
The sheriff has apologized since, stating, “We meant no disrespect toward Mr. Osbourne or his show. [Criminals] get very creative in how they abscond from the law. We just got real creative in how we reeled them in.”
