Minnelli crew member detained by police


STOCKHOLM, Sweden -- One of Liza Minnelli's crew members was detained by police in Stockholm late Saturday on suspicion of beating up a photographer who was filming the singer's performance, police said.

Minnelli, 61, was performing in Sweden as part of the gala event "A Classic Christmas Night," alongside a string of Swedish artists.

Police spokesman Gunnar Samuelsson told The Associated Press the man was suspected of beating up and threatening the photographer.

He said the man was a member of Liza Minnelli's crew, but that he did not know his exact position.

Minnelli won an Oscar and a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Sally Bowles in the 1972 film "Cabaret." She won an Emmy for the 1972 TV special "Liza with a Z." She also won Tony Awards in 1974 and 1978.
