Uptown Man Ripped Penis Ring From Rock'n'Roll Pole Dancer, Prosecutors Say

McCort | Chicago Police Dept
An Uptown man is facing charges for allegedly tearing a penis ring out of a rock’n’roll pole dancer’s manhood during a live stage performance at Reggies, a favorite concert venue and bar at 2105 South State Street.

Cops said Alexander McCort, 52, turned himself in at the 19th District Police station in Wrigleyville about a month after the incident unfolded during Reggies’ March 25th “Viva la Pole Show” performance.

The event featured 30 pole dancers performing as live tribute bands saluted Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, and Korn, according to a promotional flyer.

Mr. Nude North America, Bobby Spear, told police that McCort reached up onto the stage during his performance and pulled on a ball that was dangling from Spear.

McCort’s action “tore” the chain out of Spear, according to police, who pointed out that, “said [penis] attachment was not visible as it was under the victim’s costume.”

McCort's charged with reckless conduct.

Meanwhile, Spear—whose Facebook page says he's "living life without pants"—is turning to GoFundMe for help with medical expenses and lost income recovery.

The incident “has left him with a great deal of trauma and unfortunately disfigurement to a very vital and important part of his body,” the online appeal says.

“The damage done to him by this audience will impact the rest of his life...He is being told there is a very high chance of this disfigurement being permanent.”

Spear has been told that restorative surgery will involve “high risk” and a low chance of success, the GoFundMe request says.

“This is a situation that no one can imagine the physical and mental pain…any help you can give will be beyond appreciated.”

Spear’s GoFundMe had raised $960 of its $5,000 goal as of Friday morning.

    1. He attaches a ball that hangs from his piecing and there a little hole in his underwear so he can attach to his prince Albert piercing and you can't see his good. The jerk reached up and ripped it out when he was in the middle of his set. For no reason to. Bobby is a great guy and amazing performer too!! Love ya Bobby...stay strong!! <3 Jenn Garrett

    1. You really think you're funny putting girlfriend in quotes don't you. I know both Bobby and Kourtney personally and this was a devastating thing to happen to exceptionally nice people. Too bad you're to afraid to post stupid crap like this with your real name -'anonomyous loser' should be your name.

    2. Wow... really... she is a beautiful person inside and out... Bobby sees this and so many more people do too... you on the other hand are an ugly ugly person and I have no clue who you are or what you look like...

      I know everyone is upset. Emotions are running high. Let's ease up on the anger though. Direct your rage at offender in this case. Let's not take it out on each other. I'm sure Bobby and his "girlfriend" feel the same.

  4. Reckless Conduct was the charge? I suspect the injury wasn't too severe. If it were, the charge should have been a felony aggravated battery.

    1. (1) Charges are often upgraded after initial "holding charges" have been filed
      (2) In this case, it appears that the man did not know that the chain was "attached," therefore no intent to batter.

    2. Injury was very bad and required multiple trips to emergency room/hospital so far because the stitches kept ripping out. I'm surprised the jerk that did this to Bobby isn't getting may more severe charges...

    3. The intent was unlawful touching which is battery. You take your victims as you find them. Agg Batt approved by Asa BobbyLupo.

  6. I know this guy first hand and let me tell you that he knew EXACTLY what he was doing. Alex wasn't cool with Bobby Spear dancing in his face and his masculinity was threatened. He said that if Spear came back with any of that "gay shit" he would "tear his fucking dick piercing out". "Didn't know it was attached" my ass. Reckless Conduct is the biggest crock I've ever heard. He should be hit with any charge possible, including sexual assault. Shame this guy has to start a Go Fund Me, McCort should be milked dry of everything to cover expenses.

    1. Anyway you could be a witness?

    2. if you know what happened give an anonymous testimony to police. Without one they can't charge with much more. I agree, it is crap that it is a misdemeanor. Disfigurement to any part of the body is life changing...especially there!

      Delete
    3. Can you message Bobby on Facebook with this? They need this testimony to get the charge upgraded to a felony. Without this, he'll suffer no consequences at all.

    4. So why don't us go to the police with this info? It would greatly help their case.

      Delete
    5. I feel like that information would be super beneficial to that case. Maybe you should tell the police....

    6. Police didn't interview any witnesses at the scene, even after a few requested to speak to them. I was stunned he wasn't in custody that night. It's very frustrating and I don't know what the options are.

    7. I absolutely do not doubt your account of McCort's words, actions. I have known him for many years. He would definitely say/do all of that. His family (brother) is wealthy. Please go to the police.

  7. He better hurry his surgical repair quickly! This is certainly not going to be covered under Trumpcare!

  13. I had a penis ring once,it was a washer off a 1/4 bolt,but I lost it to some nut

  14. I gaurantee if I were there, I'd be getting felony assault charges, cause McCourt would never have made it to his car with his knees in working order. How he was not arrested on site astounds me.
