More Details Emerge Regarding Ex-Cro-Mags Bassist’s Rampage At Webster Hall In NYC
Following yesterday’s (July 06th) initial reports, official word has now emerged regarding the assaults at last night’s “CBGB Festival” at Webster Hall in New York City, NY. The New York Post have confirmed that former Cro-Mags bassist/vocalist Harley Flanagan was indeed the assailant.
Flanagan assaulted William Berario in the VIP area, slashing him above the eye with a hunting knife and biting him on the cheek. He also slashed current Cro-Mags bassist Mike “The Gook” Couls on his arm and stomach. None of the wounds were life-threatening.
Flanagan himself suffered a broken leg during the ensuing scuffle with security and was taken to a hospital and later charged with two counts of 2nd degree assault and weapons charges. As previously reported, the show, which was set to feature Sick Of It All, Cro-Mags and Vision Of Disorder was shutdown following the incident, reportedly just after Vision Of Disorder‘s set.
