It hasn't been a good couple of months for Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante. His mother died a few months ago. He injured his hand right as the band was about to head out on Mayhem Fest, and was forced to sit out the band's first big festival run, and over the weekend he was arrested, according to Metal Insider. Benante and his wife were arrested this past Friday, July 27th for domestic battery in front of a child, which is presumably their daughter Mia.
According to arrest records, they were picked up in Elkhart, IN at a Hilton Garden Inn. Not much is known as to why the couple were fighting, or why they were in Indina, except for the fact that Benante lives not too far away in Illinois. A court date is scheduled for August 3rd. If we hear more about this, we will surly report it.
