OZZY FLEES AS FANS RUSH STAGE

About 600 people rushed the stage during an Ozzy Osbourne concert in Irvine, Calif., and he and several fans suffered cuts and bruises. The heavy metal rocker had asked fans up front to come on stage during the last song Saturday. "It wasn't supposed to happen that way," his publicist, Mitch Schneider, said Monday. Osbourne, 43, had to crawl off stage to escape the crowd, Schneider said. About 12,000 people were at the concert at Irvine Meadows Amphitheater. Damage to equipment was estimated at $100,000.
