Attila’s Chris Fronzak Evades Denver Police, Has No Understanding of the U.S. Legal System

the fronzitiveIf you were looking forward to meeting Attila lead douchebag Chris Fronzak during the band’s signing at the Denver stop of the Warped tour this past Sunday, August 2, you’re probably not reading this, because you probably cannot read or write.

Everyone else, though, will probably find humor in Fronzak’s apparent ignorance with regards to how the United States legal system functions.

See, Le Fronz never made it to the aforementioned signing, because, in his own words:

Yesterday’s show in Denver was amazing, wild, and energetic. While it is NEVER my intention for anybody to be injured in our crowd, sometimes the inevitable happens, especially when you guys are all turning the fuck up.

Unfortunately for me (the performer) if I tell the crowd to “go fucking nuts” or “crowdsurf” or “start a fucking moshpit” and people get injured, I am now legally liable for “inciting a riot”. In the midst of yesterday’s chaotic and amazing show, a few people unfortunately got injured.

At that point I was told that the police may be searching for me for “inciting a riot” so naturally- I dipped the fuck out. I don’t know about you but I don’t fuck with police or jail.

I know some of you are disappointed because you feel like I “ditched” my signings or whatever, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. I love my fans and meeting you guys is the highlight of my day, I’m just not trying to get arrested.

I just wanna play music, that’s all. I’d like to send my sincerest apologies out to anybody that may have gotten hurt during yesterday’s performance. My intention was to have 5,000 people crowdsurfing safely to the front. I love and care about all of you and I don’t want anyone to get hurt.

Love you guys,

I understand not wanting to get arrested, and for once, I actually agree with Fronzilla — he (or any other performer for that matter) shouldn’t be held responsible if someone gets hurt in the pit.

Still, I wonder what Fronz thinks will happen now that he has successfully evaded arrest. Presumably, the cops will just get him the next time he’s in the great state of Colorado, right? I mean, if I kill someone in New York, it’s not as though I’m 100% home free once I enter Pennsylvania. Leaving the state isn’t like escaping to Mexico. The cops won’t stand at the state line, screaming in frustration, “ROSENBERGGGGGGG!!!” They don’t have but once chance to get things right. The law is not a game of Red Rover.

So what’s Fronz’s thinking here? Is Colorado now forever spared the pain of future Attila performances? Are his lawyers working on some kind of deal? Or will Fronzilla just be unpleasantly surprised the next time he plays in that state and the cops get him then?

And while we’re asking questions about Fronz’s logic: is it really wise to publicly admit that you were evading the police? That seems ill advised, doesn’t it?

I suppose there’s another possibility, which is that Fronz is just totally full of shit and needed an excuse to get out of the signing and/or thought saying he was hiding from the cops made him sound like a badass. Personally, I hope he was telling the truth, just ’cause I wanna see how this plays out!
