Cannibal Corpse Guitarist Appears In Court To Face Charges Over Burglary And Assaulting A Police Officer

The guitarist will have to undergo a drugs test before being considered for bail.

Following yesterday’s news that Cannibal Corpse’s Pat O’Brien was arrested for burglary and aggravated assault on a police officer, the guitarist appeared in a Florida court to face charges.

According to Florida TV station WFTS-TV, O’Brien entered a house that wasn’t his own, refused to comply with requests from the owners that he leave the house, and shoved a woman down during the process. He then headed to the backyard, where deputies found him. When they tried to apprehend him, Pat rushed them with a knife, at which point he was tased and arrested.

O’Brien was detained in Hillsborough County jail and appeared in court, bound in chains and wearing an anti-suicide vest.

A judge told the guitarist that he will have to undertake a drugs test before he can be considered for release on $50,000 bail.
