Did the Arcade Fire steal this man's basketball?

This is possibly one of the more entertaining internet feuds I've seen in a while.

Apparently there was an incident in the Cal Berkeley athletic center where one of the members of the Arcade Fire was kicked out for trying to hold a court until his buddies arrived and may or may not have stolen some guy's basketball. The guy gets pissed and starts a blog:

After responding in the comments secion of the original post, members of the band allegedly started this blog in response, an attempt to out-libel the original blogger:

Just the fact that something this absurd can happen makes me love the internet. Did he steal the basketball? I have no idea but that's not going to stop me from taking sides. Personally I think the guy is full of shit. He lost his ball and now he's trying to pin it on the celebrity.

This is great stuff. I love the internet. Besides the awesome banter--which is unusually flame free--it led me to this gem:
