Slaves Frontman Jonny Craig Fall Down Go Boom, Appears to Choke Fan
Last we heard from screamo band Slaves, they were in a public tiff with their label, Artery Recordings, over who had the rights to post their lyric video. The last time we heard from them before that, guitarist Alex Lyman was providing an alibi for Falling in Reverse’s Ronnie Radke after the latter was accused of sexual assault. Back when vocalist Jonny Craig was in Dance Gavin Dance, he allegedly scammed his own fans by selling fake MacBooks for drug money. The list goes on.
What we’re saying is this: these guys clearly don’t attract controversy at all. Nope, not one bit!
The latest non-controversy: after falling off stage during the band’s show in Detroit, MI earlier this week (hey, it happens), Craig ended up in the audience and appeared to choke a fan. The entire incident was captured on video by another fan, which you can watch below, but it’s not clear exactly why Craig attacked the fan; presumably he said something to Craig while the latter was down, or got in his way, or… who the fuck knows. Tempers gonna temper.
Watch the incident below.
