Ronnie Radke, Falling In Reverse‘s frontman, was arrested Saturday night following the band’s concert at Six Flags in New Jersey.
It was at the end of the band’s final song, their current hit, “The Drug In Me Is You,” that the incident took place. A video shot by an audience member shows the singer picking up at least three mic stands and sending them into the air over the heads of the audience. According to UnderTheGun.com, two landed on fans splitting their heads open. One female hit in the head also suffered from a broken hand. Both were taken to a local hospital. A professional mic stand’s cast-iron discus-like base can weigh in excess of 10 pounds.

This is the second time in two months that the singer has been arrested. In early August, the singer was arrested in California for “Corporal Injury to Spouse” and “False Imprisonment.” According to statement by LAPD Sgt. Tom Lorenz, Radke was arrested without incident and was later released on a $30,000 bail bond. The L.A. County district attorney’s office had issued the warrant after Radke’s girlfriend told Glendale police that he had physically assaulted her at their home on May 1st.
Despite pushing the trial back several times to allow for the band’s The Thug In Me Is You tour, a court date of November 14 has been locked in.
