Here are 5 weirdest things fans have been arrested for.
Exodus Fan Arrested After Posting Band's Lyrics on His Facebook
A 31-year old Exodus fan named James Evans was a fan of heavy music in general and liked posting lyrics to his favorite songs on Facebook. So on August 24, Evans posted the lyrics to Exodus' "Class Dismissed (A Hate Primer)" from their Exhibit B: The Human Condition record.
As fans of heavier music, we've all seen worse. Apparently, nobody else down in Kentucky has though, because the post got Evans arrested.
County school resource officer said that multiple agencies received calls concerned about the post and Evans was arrested for terroristic threatening.
Evans was placed in the Muhlenberg County Detention Center for eight days. All charges against James Evans were dismissed after the American Civil Liberties Union of Kentucky took his defense, presenting the case as a First Amendment issue.
Drunk fan arrested after boarding Third Eye Blind’s tour bus
A guy in Atlanta was charged with disorderly conduct and public intoxication after police say he boarded a tour bus for the rock band Third Eye Blind and got into a fight with the group’s manager. The dust-up happened following Third Eye Blind’s concert at the Georgia Theatre in downtown Athens. Apparently, 28-year-old Kevin G. Knoblich just wanted to tell band members that he enjoyed the show.
The report said Knoblich told officers he was told to leave the tour bus, and a dispute with the band manager then escalated to slaps and punches.
British Teen arrested for wearing Cradle of Filth Shirt
According to a story published in the October 18, 2005 edition of the Metro newspaper, a British teenage heavy metal fan has been handed a community service order for wearing an offensive t-shirt.
Adam Shepherd, 19, was reportedly convicted under new anti-hate laws which ban people from displaying religiously insulting signs.
The teenager was arrested after a woman complained to police when she saw his shirt, which promotes extreme heavy metal band Cradle Of Filth.
The t-shirt shows a picture of a nun in a pornographic pose. On the back is a comment about Jesus. The top was being worn by Shepherd's girlfriend when a police officer approached her. As soon as the teenager realized there was a problem, he told the officer it was his and swapped tops with his girlfriend. But he refused to take it off or cover it up and was arrested.
Shepherd, who bought the shirt in his hometown of Weymouth, Dorset, admitted the charge. Weymouth magistrates gave him 80 hours community service and told him to pay £40 costs (approx. $71).
You all knew there's gotta be at least one Juggalo on the list. A Wisconsin Juggalo named Jonathan Schrap was arrested for chopping off the pinky and gashing the arm of fellow ICP worshipper Shelby Neuens. And, oh yeah, Schrap also drank Neuens’ blood.
Here comes the punchline. Neuens was a willing participant in her own disfigurement! The whole thing was intended as a “ritualistic memorial” for a fellow Juggalo who died last year. Other participants in the ceremony, who did not have to lose an appendage, included some guy named Nick Laabs and an ICP-wannabe rapper known as “Bloody Ruckus” (his real name is Preston Hyde).
Part of man's ear bitten off at Eagles of Death Metal concert
Yup, such things happen not only at black metal concerts. An official from the venue said both men involved were detained and the man accused of doing the biting was arrested and charged with aggravated assault. Toronto police confirmed that part of a male concert-goer's ear was bitten off and one man was charged. The victim was rushed to hospital. Canadian music journalist Alan Cross said the ear was picked up by security at the venue. The source doesn't say if the ear was reattached to its owner.
