Anthrax Drummer And Wife Arrested In Indiana

Charlie's mug shot

This is not cool at all.

Reports out of South Bend, Indiana, claim Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante and his wife Sandra were arrested on Friday (July 27) on charges of domestic battery in front of a child.

According to arrest records, the pair were detained at the Hilton Garden Inn in Elkhart, Indiana, and both were released from Elkhart County Jail on Saturday.

Benante, 49, and Sandra, 41, had their first child, Mia Charley Benante, in 2006.

There were no further details available regarding the arrest.

No specific details, anyways.

The fact that they were fighting in front of their kid is fucking whack.

I hate that people do that shit.
