Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament and a band employee, Mark Anthony Smith, were mugged outside producer Brendan O’Brien‘s Southern Tracks Studios on April 27 and security camera footage has now surfaced. In it you see three dudes run up to Ament’s rented Jeep and smash the driver’s side window. Ament, who was in the passenger side, gets out and tries to run away but is tackled by one of the muggers. He reportedly suffered minor injuries in the afternoon attack.
