Liam Gallagher Claims Teeth Were 'Pulled Out With Pliers' By German Cops
Singer Liam Gallagher has made the startling claim that police in Germany yanked his front teeth out while was unconscious.
The former Oasis musician opened up to The Guardian about a 2002 brawl in a Munich hotel bar that ended with his arrest and the cancellation of the band’s German tour.
At the time, it was reported that Gallagher had his front teeth knocked out in the melée.
“If I was to hit you in the mouth, you’d think you’d have a fat lip, right? I didn’t have a fat lip,” Gallagher recalled.
The rocker, who admitted to kicking a police officer, claimed he was given “a whack over the head” in the back of a police van and, while he was out, his teeth were “pulled out with pliers by the f**king German police.”
Gallagher backed up his theory by adding that his teeth “were pulled out completely perfect.”
Police at the time had a different version. “They were going: ‘Oh, as you were coming up the stairs, you tripped and they whacked on there.’ But they’d have broken, wouldn’t they? You don’t f**king have them completely fall out like that.
“And I woke up in a prison cell, handcuffed, no teeth, but I could still [whistle] and no other marks on me. So I’m going: they f**king ripped them out because I did one of their geezers, that’s what happened there.”
