Rocker Slash Booked in Alleged Beating

Hard rock guitarist Slash, formerly of Guns N' Roses, was arrested over the weekend after his live-in girlfriend accused him of beating her, authorities said Sunday.

Sheriff's deputies arrested the 34-year-old rocker, whose legal name is Saul Hudson, about 8:30 p.m. Saturday at his West Hollywood recording studio, said Deputy Cruz Solis.

The girlfriend's name was not released.

Hudson was booked on suspicion of spousal assault. Within two hours of his arrest, he posted $50,000 bail.
