Classic Rock Magazine is reporting that ANTHRAX‘s drummer Charlie Benante‘s lawyer has said the following:
“Mr Benante and his six-year-old daughter Mia had travelled to Elkhart, Indiana, to meet Mrs Benante and her 17-year-old son, who was participating in a baseball series.
“At some point words were exchanged between Mr Benante, Mrs Benante and her male companion that led to a scuffle.
“Mrs Benante hit Mr Benante in the face, he pushed her away, and as he turned to leave with Mia, Mrs Benante assaulted him from behind, hitting him multiple times on the back of the head with a cellphone.
“Police were called and both were detained. Mr Benante is understandably distraught by this incident, and that his daughter, who he dotes on, witnessed it.”
Charlie will appear in court again this coming Friday.
