Attila’s Chris Fronzak Could Face Battery Charges for Assaulting Security Guards

0

So remember that story yesterday about how Chris Fronzak, the only member of Attila anyone actually knows, attacked some security guards during a show at the Hard Rock in Vegas for allegedly beating up on fans? Including at least one instance, caught on camera, of him sucker punching a security guard in the back of the head, and then having the nerve to call the security guard “a pussy bitch”? Well, there is now the distinct possibility that that decision won’t turn out so great for him.

A rep for Contemporary Services Corporation, who provided security at the event, tells Las Vegas’ News 3 that “their company filed a police report with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, who say that Fronzak could face a battery charge for his role in the incident,” according to Lambgoat. The rep also claims that “Fronzak sucker punched two security guards and a third guard was hit with a guitar in the back;” this may have been an attack from Attila bassist Kalan Blehm, who The PRP says “was also seen slapping a member of the venue’s security.”

For their parts, Fronzak claims he was just protecting concertgoers…

…but he also very publicly declined a press request to speak about the incident:

It’s not clear who Fronzak thinks would hurt him if he spoke to the media; I guess his wounds would be self-inflicted, since he’d be “snitching” on himself? I dunno.

Meanwhile, the Hard Rock has released the following statement regarding the event:

“The safety and security of our fans, staff and performers is our top priority. We are disappointed in the escalation of events at the Attila show last night. While we believe security acted in an appropriate way to protect the best interests of guests, we are reviewing the incident to ensure proper protocol was followed.”

This is neither Fronzak’s first run-in with Johnny Law, nor the first instance of an Attila member getting into a fight with security over their alleged treatment of his fans.
