Ex-Queens Of The Stone Age Bassist Nick Oliveri Involved In Standoff With L.A. Police
Former Queens Of The Stone Age bassist/vocalist Nick Oliveri (also of Kyuss/Kyuss Lives!, etc.) was involved in a standoff with police at his L.A. home last night (July 12th) according to TMZ.com. Apparently the incident started as a domestic dispute between Oliveri and his girlfriend which allegedly turned violent a few days prior.
When she returned to collect her things to move out last night, Oliveri forcibly locked both himself and the unnamed woman in his residence. An apparent standoff then ensued with a S.W.A.T. team being called before Oliveri eventually released both his girlfriend and later gave himself up. He has since been booked on a charge of felony domestic violence and was released after posting $100,000 bail.
