Between The Buried And Me/Glass Casket Guitarist Dustie Waring Denies Rape Allegation


Between The Buried And Me/Glass Casket guitarist Dustie Waring has found himself at the center of an allegation of rape. Over the weekend an written account and screen caps of a conversation related to an alleged past sexual encounter involving Dustie were shared to the band’s Reddit. That incident was said to have taken place several years ago. You can find the allegation in its entirety here.

In it, it’s alleged that Waring and the female in question had initially been socializing in a bar. She alleges that she was 12 years younger than Waring at the time, and that some heavy drinking had been taking place around one of the band’s concerts. The woman in question stated that she was ultimately too drunk to be admitted to the venue and later attended a bar where she first met Waring.

She alleges that upon meeting Waring at that establishment, “he bought me a lot of shots”, and that her recollection of the night became hazy afterwards. She further claimed that Dustie penetrated and ultimately impregnated her while she was blacked out that night.

She provided screen caps of a conversation allegedly said to have taken place afterwards with Waring in which he filled in the blanks.

Pressed for comment on the matter by MetalSucks, Waring‘s legal representative issued the below statement:

Dustie Waring of BTBAM/Glass Casket is aware of the allegations and working on a statement that is both sensitive to victims of sexual assault but also sufficiently communicates their adamant denial of these allegations.”
