John Henderson of the Naples Daily News reports that the two primary officers involved in the New Year's Eve arrest in North Naples, Florida of RUSH guitarist Alex Lifeson (a.k.a.

Pictures taken of Alex Zivojinovich as he was leaving the Collier County jail on Jan. 2 show the white shirt he was wearing that evening was covered in blood. His nose was swollen.

He said more investigation into the case needs to occur before this determination can be made. [Read more]
