Limp Bizkit singer Fred Durst has been sued by the St. Paul, Minn.-based security company that employed a guard who Durst allegedly kicked in the head during a 1999 concert there. Azzone Security-Investigation Agency Inc., or ASIA, filed the lawsuit yesterday (Sept. 22). It names as defendants Durst, his production companies and his record labels.

The company seeks a judgment against Durst and the other defendants for the $49,663 in workers compensation it claims it already paid and for expected future payments.

Durst allegedly kicked security guard Patrick Estes in the head onstage during the concert, according to police reports at the time. Durst was apologetic, police said then, because he apparently had mistaken Estes for a fan he believed was attacking his personal security guard.

Police arrested Durst, but an assault charge later was dismissed, his lawyer, Earl Gray, said. Gray said he was not familiar with the new complaint.

Estes filed his own civil lawsuit against Durst, leading to an April 2000 settlement in which Durst and other defendants agreed to pay the guard $100,000, according to court records.

Limp Bizkit's new Interscope album, "Results May Vary," was released today in North America.
