A Los Angeles Councilman is asking AEG Live to pay some of the estimated $1.4 million cost for policing Michael Jackson's memorial service that took place on Tuesday at the Staples Center.

Councilman Dennis Zine told Fox 11 today that taxpayers are getting ripped off because AEG made $50,000 by charging the media to use risers outside the venue. Zine said AEG should grow a pair and cough up some cash.

AEG President Tim Leiweke had said Zine was out of line for asking AEG to foot the policing bill because it helped solicit donors for the Los Angeles Lakers' NBA victory parade last month.
