DEICIDE Concert In Texas Shut Down By Cops; Guitarist RALPH SANTOLLA Arrested

DEICIDE's concert at the Hustlers in Laredo, TX Friday night (July 14) was reportedly shut down by the police after four songs and DEICIDE guitarist Ralph Santolla was apparently arrested during the ensuing chaos. The following two separate accounts of last night's events were submitted by BLABBERMOUTH.NET readers who attended the show:

Report #1: "Some business went bad with Glen Benton [DEICIDE frontman] and the promoter, and there was major power/sound problems for DEICIDE... Needless to say, Glen voiced his unhappiness over the PA during their set... bottles flew, DEICIDE guitarist Ralph got arrested, chaos ensued, and about 12 police cars, a SWAT team, and other law enforcement people showed up and cleared the place out. I don't have any other details as I was [elsewhere] when the real craziness happened, so most of my details here are second-hand (other than seeing all the cops and SWAT guys)."

Report #2: "Apparently, the entire night went wrong. The cops showed up and one of the guitarists from DEICIDE [allegedly] threw a Red Bull at one of the officers and the officer chased him and ended up spraying him with pepper spray and arresting him. Glen Benton kept complaining that the promoters had ripped him off and threatened to walk off stage. But the cops shut the show down after four songs and sent everyone home. Bad day in South Texas."
