Members of King 810 Arrested on Charges of Assault with Intent to do Great Bodily Harm
I owe King 810 an apology. Last month, I made fun of them for pretending to be knuckle-dragging thugs in an attempt to look cool to the kinds of idiots who find that thing appealing. But as it turns out, they weren’t pretending — they really are knuckle-dragging thugs.
Lambgoat reports that two members of the band, vocalist David Gunn and bassist Eugene Gill, were arrested on Friday on charges of “assault with intent to do great bodily harm” stemming from an October 2013 fight outside a bar in Flint, Michigan.
The members of the band who haven’t been incarcerated commented via Facebook:
“We will not be performing at Download this weekend. Two of us were put behind bars in Flint, MI. on Thursday afternoon as we drove into Detroit Metro Airport for the flight to London.
“Upon arrival the Michigan State Police Fugitive Team arrested David and Eugene and took them away in handcuffs.
“At the time of this writing they remain in jail for an alleged assault from last year.
“We apologize we cannot make it. We promise we will be there as soon as we possibly can.”
They also shared this photo of Gunn and Gill being arrested:
And here are the duo’s mugshots:
A hearing is scheduled for Gunn and Gill for next week. If convicted, they face up to ten years in prison and and/or could have to pay fines of up to $5,000 each and/or could be forced to listen to their own music. Okay I might have made that last part up.
