Grammy-winning Tejano singer attacked in Houston

Posted: Updated:

HOUSTON (AP) — The lead singer of the Grammy-winning Tejano group La Mafia has suffered head wounds in an unprovoked attack outside a Houston club.

Band co-founder Armando Lichtenberger Jr. says Oscar De La Rosa and his driver were knocked unconscious by a man they didn't recognize in the attack early Monday. Lichtenberger says De La Rosa is resting at his Houston home Tuesday.

No arrests have been made. Houston police are looking for a man who became violent after being thrown out of the bar.

Lichtenberger says De La Rosa has facial cuts, eye damage and he lost two teeth.

He says La Mafia is considering whether to cancel any performances.

The band, which formed in 1980 in Houston, won a Grammy in 2006 for the album, "Nuevamente."

Syfy reaps profits, and the second movie in the last year about a tornado of sharks makes film history.

    Sports Illustrated cover model Chrissy Teigen is primarily known for her exotic beauty. But there's also all those unfiltered social media posts and interview antics, like the time she shoved her hands in my face and asked me to smell them. To her credit we got on the subject of cooking, one of her favorite things to do. She was describing a dish she made earlier in the day and offered her garlic scented fingers as proof.
