Rocker Dave Matthews isn't laughing after human waste was dumped from his tourbus in onto a packed riverboat - because he has to pay the $200,000 (GBP110,000) fine.

The CRASH INTO ME singer landed in court after driver STEFAN WOHL emptied the raw sewage while the coach crossed the Chicago River in Illinois last year (04).

But while many found the incident amusing, Matthews - who wasn't even on the bus at the time - is unimpressed.

He says, "We don't like to laugh about it.

"We're gonna go over and beyond to repair the damage that we did - to the point of absurdity."
