These days, its getting rarer and rarer to find a singer who's foolish enough to use the line "Don't you know who I am", on the grounds if that if you have to ask, the person you're asking either doesn't know, or doesn't care.

Luis Miguel, it seems, hasn't worked this out yet.

[As you might be going who, he's one of the bigger latin artists in the US, and briefly was Mariah Carey's shagpadoodle]

Wonderfully, he's been arrested for an assault on Aspen bartender Jason Moan:

Miguel was charged with misdemeanor assault after being arrested last month for hitting bartender Jason Moan while Moan was trying to free another man from a chokehold by Miguel's bodyguard, Julio Cesar Camera, the newspaper reported. The police report said Camera approached William Hardy after Hardy insulted Miguel's musical abilities.

Moan told police that Miguel tried to stop him from pulling bodyguard Camera off of Hardy. Moan and other witnesses said Miguel said "Don't you know who I am?" Moan said he told Miguel that "I don't care who you are, you don't fight in here."

Both Miguel and Camera have denied hitting Moan. The hearing is set for March 3, but the district attorney's office said Miguel isn't required to appear in person and could send his attorney for the appearance.

Mind you, we have to take a dim view of musicians hitting people who say they're a bit rubbish, on the grounds of, well, self-protection.
