ATLANTA — Police say Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament was mugged outside an Atlanta recording studio.

A Dekalb County police report says three people with knives attacked Ament and a band employee as they arrived at the Southern Tracks recording studio late last month.

Police say the attackers smashed three car windows and grabbed a Blackberry and two computers and demanded money. They stole $3,000 in cash and more than $4,000 worth of items.

The report says Ament tried to get away, but one of the assailants chased him down and knocked him to the ground. Ament suffered a head wound and his passport was stolen.

Surveillance cameras caught the incident but no arrests have been made.

Pearl Jam management had no comment today.

This sort of shit doesn't surprise me coming from Atlanta, or even FLorida. Ament looks like a skate board kid when he is wandering so they must have done their homework on this particular deal.

Could have been much, much worse:

"C'mere purty boy... My! My! Don't you have a purty mouth on ya?" :shock:

Translation:

"Welcome to the deep South, Mr. Ament. Would you like us to check your bags?" :lol:


All kidding aside... I hope he's OK. :B
