Matthew Bellamy, 30, was walking home from a bar in Sandusky, Ohio around 3 a.m. with a group of friends when a man jumped out of a car and hit him three times, according to witnesses.

Police have issued a warrant for Robert Horton, 23, who faces felony assault charges.

Bellamy secured internet fame last July when he wore a James jersey to Progressive Field a few short days after the basketball star's controversial decision aired. He was escorted out of the stadium after fans began tossing food and alcohol at him.
