SLIPKNOT & SLAYER Fans Cause 'Mayhem' At Darien Lake Leading To 21 Arrests Or Citations!

What a summer! First LAMB OF GOD's Randy Blythe is arrested in the Czech Republic on manslaughter charges, then Harley Flanagan (former bassist from the CRO MAGS) stabs some of the current band members in New York City, and just this week someone threatened to kill Jonny Davy from JOB FOR A COWBOY at the Tampa, Florida stop of this year's "Summer Slaughter Tour" causing major delays.

Yesterday (August 1), according to The Batavian, 21 people were arrested or cited during the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival concert at Darien Lake Performing Arts Center in Darien Center, New York. Of the four people arrested, a 49-year-old man and a 27-year-old male were charged with disorderly conduct after allegedly engaging in a fight in the parking lot; a 23-year-old man was charged with trespass after allegedly climbing a light pole inside the concert venue; and a 51-year-old male was charged with DWI and Driving with more than .08 BAC after allegedly driving in the parking lot intoxicated. Seven people were charged with unlawful possession of marijuana and 10 others were issued citations for alleged consumption/possession of alcohol under age 21.

Regarding the lower number of underage drinking citations, Deputy Chief Gordon Dibble said SLIPKNOT and SLAYER — who are headlining this year's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival — draw a slightly older crowd than, say, Toby Keith. "We still went out looking for violations, we just didn't find too many," Dibble said.

We suggest you all calm down, otherwise we will all be punished by having less shows in the next few years! Cool? Carry on!
