Police Sting?

4/17/2008 3:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Is it more likely that Sting wrote "Roxanne" about French prostitutes while traveling in Paris ... or in the basement of his Reno home with a guy he met at a restaurant? Wait, don't answer that yet.
Read the docs
According to a police report filed by Roy Smith, Sting heard him singing at Molly's Garden Restaurant back in 1977 (or 1978, Smith can't quite remember), thought he was good, and asked him to hang out.

They stopped at a 7-Eleven for beer (Sting, at a 7-Eleven?) and hung out for hours in Sting's basement. During that time, Smith told Sting about an ex-girlfriend of his named Roxanne, who was a prostitute. Smith also explained how after his father died, he wrote his mom messages, which he put in a bottle. Just like in the song! Oh, right ...

Smith claims Sting agreed to give him royalties for the songs, but never did. Here is the best part -- Smith claims Sting tried to contact him, through his mom, but she didn't pass along the messages because she thought the real police were after her son!

Smith has contacted Sting's lawyers, who deny all the allegations. He also filed a report with the Reno P.D. last month. The fuzz tells TMZ, "Initial review of the report indicates that the statute of limitations of any potential crime in this matter has expired. The alleged victim may have to pursue the matter through civil litigation." Good luck.

Area 51    

Let's see...I was really bombed, but I think I talked to Sting in a Denny's parking lot in 1980. I'm almost sure he used some of my drunken rants in his next album. He must owe me millions.

Standards are badly needed.    

Sting would know if this was true or not. Lord knows he has amassed enough money to give any credit to this fellow should any credit be due, unless all Sting's yoga has mysteriously embedded conditional ethics rather than spiritual awakening. Does anyone do the right thing anymore? Sigh.

If Britney can hang at gas stations.... Sting can buy beer at 7-eleven!

This sounds like a crock of BS to me, though.

By the way, Harvey.. How is Parker from "Big Brother"??
