TENACIOUS D Show in Vegas Ends In Stabbing
What is going on in the metal world lately? People are getting detained, stabbings at hardcore shows, domestic battery, and now… more stabbings. A Tenacious D show in Las Vegas was cut short this weekend when somebody in the audience got stabbed. According to this report:
Las Vegas police confirmed Sunday night that at least one suspect was arrested in connection with a stabbing at a concert at the House of Blues that left at least one man injured.
Police spokesman Jose Hernandez said there were conflicting reports, but it appeared two suspects were arrested Saturday night at the Tenacious D show inside the Mandalay Bay music venue.
Hernandez said one or two injured concertgoers were transported to University Medical Center with injuries not considered life threatening. He did not know the identity of the suspects nor what charge or charges they could face.
Hernandez said the concertgoers fought prior to the bloodshed.
"There was some sort of altercation that led up to the stabbing," he said.
An eyewitness said there was a violent incident about halfway through the Tenacious D show.
The show, scheduled for 90 minutes, was cut short by a half-hour, and concertgoers were told not to leave until the area was secured.
Did somebody flip a switch of violence on metal shows all of the sudden, and a Tenacious D show of all places? Calm down America!
