VEKTOR Frontman Arrested For Throwing Beer At Christian Protester
Apparently David DiSanto of Vektor was not happy about a protest going on at the Scion Rock Festival and winged a beer at a protestor.
Scion Rock Fest took place over the weekend, and apparently there was some kind of protest after the event. According to a quote obtained by a few news sources from an unavailable Tumblr post on Earache's blog, " David got locked up for throwing a beer on a Christian protester." Smooth. The band said:
Alright alright alright. As many of you know it was an intriguing evening in Memphis after the show itself (which did rule, thanks to you all, by the way). We’d like to clarify a bit though, the blurb going around is sounding a bit misleading. 1. “Threw a beer” does not mean “chucked a glass bottle”, or even a can/cup. (allegedly) beer was splashed out of a plastic cup, no violence. 2. He’s not locked away or anything, only a misdemeanor…
We are getting a well needed chuckle from all the FREE DAVE/FREE VEKTOR stuff though. Even though you guys have put a somewhat positive spin on it, it was a stressful ordeal for everyone involved last night, and all before an early morning flight. He is safe and sound though.
We are still missing details, as none of the 3 of us actually saw what happened and haven’t been able to communicate with him whatsoever since. Thanks for your amusing support, nothing remotely like this has ever happened to him (or us) so we’re kind of dizzy.
Pretty absurd, but not the end of the world or anything. We probably shouldn’t say much more yet, and we have yet to see if or how this will affect things. It is unfortunate, but what’s done is done and hopefully the consequences are as mild as the (alleged) act.
Vektor (minus David, but only briefly)
I wonder exactly what the hell happened then if he got arrested for spilling beer on the dude lik they think happened. Seems pretty absurd for that to have caused an arrest… but I guess we'll find out?
