MONSTER MAGNET Bassist Arrested After Clocking Audience Member In Head

According to the Rock N Roll Experience web site, MONSTER MAGNET bassist Jim Baglino was arrested following the band's September 30, 2004 concert in Lancaster, PA. Baglino told the web site, "We had a really crazy show and there was no barricade and I swung my bass and hit a guy in the head and the next thing I knew he was being carried out and was bleeding, and after the show I was arrested and I sat in a cell for 15 hours." Added Rock N Roll Experience webmaster Bob Suehs, "I'm not quite sure what happened in terms of a settlement, but I do know that the entire band was in New York and that their label reps flew from California to New York to make settlement and get this ordeal over with...the band actually did not get to the venue until like 15 minutes or so before show time...Their drummer Bob and Jim both summed it up saying that this entire tour had been really crazy and that they look forward to their last show for this leg of the tour on Oct. 2 in Virginia so they can take a brief break before the next leg of the tour starts. As far as the charges go, it's also not clear if the charges were dropped, or what charges he was arrested on."
