According to WSBT.com, a television station in South Bend, Indiana, ANTHRAX drummer Charlie Benante and his wife were arrested Friday (July 27) for domestic battery in front of a child.

Arrest records indicate the pair were picked up at the Hilton Garden Inn in Elkhart, Indiana, and both were released from Elkhart County Jail on Saturday (July 28).

For more details, visit the web site of the Elkhart County Sheriff's Department.

Benante and his wife Sandra had their first child, Mia Charley Benante, in 2006.





I suppose he's out for the whole Mayhem tour.



What a random act of senseless violence. Charlie, beats the wife, the wife he beats. We can all be thankful they kept it in the family, at least.


Looks like someone's heading to the Madhouse soon, after getting Metal Thrashing Mad at his Medusa of a wife (apparently). His wife got caught in a mosh, outside of their safe home. Looks like they were fighting till they can't, then the cops showed up.








I'm done now.

Guess there really isn't that much to do in Indiana.This is the only post in this thread that got even the slightest reaction out of me. I smirked when I read this, because I used to live in Indiana for two years, and you likely have no idea how fucking right you are about this. Elkhart in particular is an armpit in the middle of a big fucking cornfield.

As far as the quoted article and incident, why is anybody surprised in the least? This isn't even news, really. Many artists are fucked up people, and fucked up people tend to attract other fucked up people as mates. Fucked up people sometimes do fucked up shit like get drunk and hit each other. Sometimes, unfortunately, it happens in front of a child. Sad, but not at all surprising.

Charlie seemed to be the most "normal" member of the band too.

This all seems a little weird. Charlie has a bandage on his head and blood on his shirt while his wife looks totally fine in the mugshots. This is a really minor thing, but I really don't think he would have wanted to get his kid involved if he could help it. When I met him a few months back he was crazy nice and was happy to answer my nerdy Anthrax questions and kept calling me and the other kid I was with "heavy metal's future." That and the Lady Gaga anecdote on the BM page is giving me an image of a guy that really loves seeing kids have fun (I've never seen anyone involve kids with a show the way that he did at the Metal Masters Clinic). I honestly think that his wife might have just flipped out or something. Who knows though, Nat could be right and he could just be crazy- I guess we'll find out soon enough.

This. When I met him he was more than happy to talk , sign stuff, and take pictures.

Well this is an interesting side to this story, it explains the bandage and blood on Charlie. Still too early to really have a concrete opinion, but if this is true then Charlie really played it smart by not retaliating.

If only he hadn't taken things out on his wife.

Was he tired of being Pussywhipped? Or did his wife have pre menstrual princess blues?
Either way there might be a Ballad of Charlie's Marriage.

Looks like she might be the one - but who knows. All I was really saying was that dysfunction is everywhere, especially in the music biz, and that Elkhart, IN is an armpit in the middle of hillbilly hell.
