WREST FROM LEVIATHAN/LURKER OF CHALICE CHARGED WITH SEXUAL ASSAULT AND DOMESTIC BATTERY

610

Well, this is terrible.

Jef Whitehead — perhaps better known in the metal world as “Wrest,” the moniker he’s used while working with bands such as Leviathan (his own project), Lurker of Chalice (also his own project), Sunn O))), Twilight, and Nachtmystium — has been “charged with criminal sexual assault and aggravated domestic battery… allegedly attacking his girlfriend,” according to the Chicago Tribune.

That’s bad enough, but what’s worse is that Whitehead — also a renowned tattoo artist — is alleged to have used his tattoo tools as part of the sexual assault. He’s also being accused of having slammed her head against the floor and choking her.

Needless to say, these are HORRIBLE accusations, the kind of thing which could haunt Whitehead for the rest of his life. Of course, if they’re true, then he should be haunted…

…but we don’t know if they’re true yet, and I don’t wanna jump to any conclusions. So for now I’m just gonna stand back and see how this plays out.

Whitehead is currently being held on $350,000 bond. More details as we get ’em.
