MARK HUNTER WAS ARRESTED

300

In news that will shock no one who follows him on Twitter (or enjoyed the slow-but-brutal grooves on The Infection, for that matter), Chimaira vocalist Mark Hunter likes to smoke weed. And, like so many of us who enjoy herbal refreshments, Hunter has now had a run-in with 5-0. Last night he was arrested in San Antonio for possession; as a result, he missed last night’s Chimaira show, and keyboardist/fellow marijuana afficionado Sean Z. filled-in on lead vocals again.

Hunter seems to be in surprisingly good spirits about the incident, though, if the tweets he’s been sending out since his release are any indication:

MARK HUNTER WAS ARRESTED

MARK HUNTER WAS ARRESTEDAnd this is yet another terrific argument in favor of legalizing marijuana. The coke head who has just been arrested freaks the fuck out; the pot head is more or less completely chill and at peace with the world. Oh my Lord, what a dangerous drug! It makes people calm! IT MAKES PEOPLE CALM!!!!!!

ANYWAY, Hunter will re-join Chimaira tonight in Dallas; if you live in the area, I suggest you go see the band and buy a Chimaira t-shirt to help contribute to the Mark Hunter Legal Fund — or, at the very least, smoke the poor dude out. ‘Cause he’s probably dry right now.
