This is kind of hilarious.
Modern Life Is War drummer Tyler Oleson was arrested Saturday night after leading police — who he had flipped the bird — on a brief, three-minute car chase in Marshalltown, Iowa.
Reports claim that Oleson started the chase after flashing the offensive hand gesture.
During the chase, Oleson attempted to “brake check” the pursuing officers, and actually caused a collision with a police cruiser.
Oleson then attempted to flee on foot.
Cops eventually caught up with him, and tased his shit hard.
Oleson faces charges of alluding criminal mischief in the second degree, aggravated assault and a first offense charge of OWI (operating while intoxicated).
More charges could be forthcoming.
The band has issued a statement on the arrest, saying, “Some of you may have heard news today regarding a member of our band today. Bottom line is that he is our friend first and foremost and we will support him. Our upcoming shows will happen as planned unless you hear otherwise from us.”
