Details Emerge On QUICKSAND Guitarist's Arrest, Charges Have Been Filed

Posted by on September 18, 2017 at 10:01 am

Quicksand has been reunited since 2012, and has since announced it'll release Interiors on November 10. The album will be the band's first since 1995, and the band is currently on tour with No Joy in support of the album.

Unfortunately it was originally reported that guitarist Tom Capone was arrested for shoplifting at a CVS in Phoenix, Arizona on September 12. Capone has since dropped off the tour, and now court documents obtained by Lambgoat detail the theft. The documents state Capone stole 43 items from the CVS, and has since been charged with one count of shoplifting-concealment and one count of resisting arrest with physical force.

On 09/12/17 at approximately 16:20 hours the defendant was observed on CCTV concealing merchandise at the CVS located at 50 W. Jefferson. CVS staff observed the defendant conceal items totaling 43 into his backpack and short pockets, and later passing all points of sale. CVS staff alerted an officer working off-duty at the City Scape Plaza in full Phoenix uniform.

The arresting officer went to contact the defendant ouside and identified himself as Phoenix PD, ordering the defendant to stop. The defendant refused and continued to walk northbound when the arresting officer grabbed the defendant by the arm. The defendant immediately attempted to break the officer’s grasp and flee, resulting in the arresting officer taking the defendant to the ground.

Once on the ground the defendant resisted the arresting officer’s efforts to place him under arrest where private security later ran to the scene to aid the officer. The defendant was then successfully placed under arrest with his hands cuffed to the rear. The arresting officer suffered a cut to his right elbow as well. During the Mirandized interview the defendant admitted to the shoplifting and resisting arrest.

The defendant was identified by his New York license and was later booked in the Fourth Ave. jail.

Quicksand has since commented on the situation, saying they wish him all the best, and thank the fans for sticking with them.

As some of you have noticed, we played our show this past Tuesday in Phoenix as a 3 piece. When we began working on new music in the Fall of 2016, Tom wasn’t in a good place health wise. We wrote and recorded Interiors with the three of us. Flash forward to the Summer of 2017, the record was done and we were planning its release and the corresponding tours.

Tom was in a much better place, and the four of us began rehearsing for the forthcoming tour. We were happy to be playing with him again and looked forward to the future. After a week of some amazing shows, the road has proved to be a difficult environment for Tom who’s headed home to work on his health. We wish him all the best, and thank you all for your continued support.
