A man who attacked Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher during a Toronto concert has been sentenced to house arrest for a year, but avoided jail time, Canada's national news agency said.
In the September 2008 attack, Daniel Sullivan jumped on stage and pushed Gallagher into the floor monitors during a music festival. Security guards tackled him as he lunged for Gallagher's brother and singer, Liam.
The attack broke three of Gallagher's ribs and forced the band to cancel several shows. Gallagher filed a civil suit against Sullivan for $2 million.
An audience member videotaped the attack and posted it on the website, YouTube, where it was viewed thousands of times.
Prosecutors had asked for a six-to-eight month prison sentence for Sullivan. But the Toronto court judge said the sentence Wednesday was sufficient, the Canadian Press reported.
Sullivan, a contractor, told officials he was drunk at the time. His lawyer said a combination of stress, alcohol and keeping a business going during a dire economic climate led to the attack, the news agency reported.
Oasis had a string of hits in the 1990s, but was equally well-known for the constant feuding between the two Gallagher brothers. In August, Noel Gallagher left the band after yet another fallout with his sibling.
