Dead Cross (Mike Patton and Dave Lombardo’s supergroup) detained by police in Houston

on August 16, 2017, 5:40pm

Members of hardcore supergroup Dead Cross were temporarily held by Houston police on Tuesday night. Although details remain sparse at this point, a press release from the band states that the band’s gear was searched by law enforcement and that Dead Cross was “restrained” while the cops executed the search.

“The band members have been advised by legal counsel not to provide further comment on the incident,” the band’s statement continued. “More information is expected to be made available from authorities following arraignment.”

The use of the word “arraignment” certainly implies that someone was charged with something, as does the legal advice to remain quiet about the incident. Houston PD told us they can’t give out further information without the address where the incident occurred, so the only additional information we have about what happened is drummer Dave Lombardo’s Instagram post showing guitarist Justin Pearson and bassist Michael Crain in handcuffs:

This is happening and it’s not good. #jesuspolice #deadcross #criminals
