A security guard posted outside the Four Seasons hotel in Philadelphia confused Red Hot Chili Peppers lead singer Anthony Kiedis for a fan trying to gain entrance to the hotel to see the Rolling Stones and chose to put the celebrity in a chokehold.

The altercation occurred as Kiedis and an accompanying woman approached the hotel, where the singer was staying for the night. A security guard wearing a black suit confronted the singer, who immediately escalated the situation by shouting and, later, shoving the guard backward.

A nearby paparazzi caught the incident on video and the hotel later released a statement saying the man who choked Kiedis was not an employee of the hotel.

Kiedis issued a simple statement about the melee: "I love the Rolling Stones.",
