Johnson, 19, turned himself in to the Leon County jail last week on a notice to appear for misdemeanor battery and was released on a $500 bond.

A medic tells Contact Music: "The monkey had come up from behind the lady and bit her on her right ear. She was just sitting there, minding her own business." Fortunately it was not a serious injury.
In addition to the loot, he demands an artist section big enough for his 20-plus entourage, stocked with 10 bottles of Dom Perignon, and more, at least 10 minutes prior to his arrival. And with a history of being shot at, it's no surprise he demands 2 security guards on either end of his booth.

And of course...there's video!
