Metal Crimes

Metal Bassist Among Bikers Jailed In Recent Texas Shootings

Ugh, here's hoping the national media doesn't paint this as another "metal is violent" thing.

Ugh, here's hoping the national media doesn't paint this as another "metal is violent" thing.

As I'm sure most of you are aware, 170 people are currently facing organized crime charges stemming from a deadly shootout between rival motorcycle gangs in Waco, Texas. One of the 170 arrested is bassist Theron Rhoten, who is a member of bands like Sans SoleilCommunion, and The Roller. Those bands have opened for the likes of Yob, Earth, Goatsnake and a few other nation acts, so they're not exactly "nobody."

Rhoten, like all the other bikers, are currently being held on $1 million bail, though Rhoten's wife is calling bullshit on his arrest in The Associated Press.

"He's good to his family," she said. "He doesn't drink; he doesn't do drugs; he doesn't party. He's just got a passion for motorcycles."

So we'll see in the coming days who is actually let go and who is charged for the senseless violence.
