KORN backing/session guitarist Clint Lowery was arrested on Thursday (July 5) at the Hodokvas festival in Piestany, Slovakia, according to a posting on the festival's web site.Clint was released from police custody at 12:30 p.m. local time (11:30 GMT) on Thursday after he was temporarily detained following a "wild drunken night" at the festival that resulted in the guitarist trashing his room, according to officials. "The musician admitted his fault, apologized for his act and immediately paid for the damage he caused," according to a report on the Hodokvas web site. Lowery, previously a member of SEVENDUST, is currently touring with KORN in Europe as the band's backing/session guitarist — a position he has held around four months after replacing ex-OTEP member Rob Patterson. Lowery is the second replacement for original KORN guitarist Brian "Head" Welch, who left the band two years ago to devote his life to Christianity. Lowery made his debut with KORN on March 1, 2007 when the band made its first appearance ever on NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno". Lowery's band DARK NEW DAY released its debut album, "Twelve Year Silence", in June of 2005. The disc featured the single "Brother". (Thanks: Korn Underground)
