Rocker Faces Assault Charges After Throwing Mic Stands Into Audience at Six Flags Great Adventure
The frontman of a popular band is facing assault charges after he threw microphone stands into the crowd during a concert at Six Flags Great Adventure. The band, Falling in Reverse played at Six Flags Great Adventure over the weekend at the parks "FestEVIL." Ronnie Radke, threw out three mic stands at the end of one of his songs resulting in two audience members being struck.
According to NBC 10,
"Police say a 16-year-old girl and a 24-year-old man were struck in the head by the mic stands, according to the Asbury Park Press. Police told the APP the girl suffered bruising and a cut on her head while the man was treated at the scene for his injuries."
Also according to NBC 10,
"Kristin Siebeneicher, a Six Flags spokeswoman, said the following to the Asbury Park Press:
This was the first metal show that we’ve ever had and will be the last. We have no plans to host another metal show.
This performer was completely reckless. He had complete disregard for the safety of his fans. His actions were totally unacceptable. It’s not the type of entertainment that we want to be producing."
Jake Owen, Love and Theft and Florida Georgia Line are scheduled to play Six Flags Great Adventure's Northern Star Arena on October 12th. I'm pretty sure there won't be any mic stand throwing happening that night!
