    Guitarist Rafael Moreira may not have earned much rock star cred while serving as the touring guitarist for pop songstresses Pink and Christina Aguilera -- or appearing in the band on the reality show Rock Star: INXS -- but he's now completed at least one rite of passage: getting arrested.

    Moreira was booked and is under investigation for assault with a deadly weapon after allegedly beating another man at Hollywood's Musicians Institute, where Moreira was a teacher and is listed on the school's website among its "success stories." The police did not immediately release any further details about the incident. A witness who spoke with the press indicated that he had seen the victim emerge from the school's library with a bloody face.

    While making a name for himself by kicking out the jams to "God Is A DJ" and "What A Girl Wants," Moreira's heart seems to live in harder rock and roll, as evidenced by his own band, Magnetico, a metal-influenced outfit that allows Moreira to stretch his Musicians Institute-trained muscles Steve Vai-style. Moreira also released a solo album, Acid Guitar, in August 2005.
