CANNIBAL CORPSE have issued the first statement following guitarist Pat O’O’Brien‘s arrest.
Read the statement below:
“As a band and as individuals, we all want nothing but the best for our brother and partner, Pat. While we can offer no further information about the incident, we wanted everyone to know that Pat is getting the help he needs and appreciates the love and support from Cannibal Corpse fans around the world.
“Pat is currently with family and friends and looks forward to a healthy return at some point. For anyone wondering, all Cannibal Corpse touring will happen as planned and all shows will be played.”
O’Brien was arrested Monday (December 10) on charges of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer and burglary of an occupied dwelling with assault. Deputies say he burglarized a house and charged at a deputy with a knife.
At the same time, Hillsborough County Fire Rescue was responding to a fire at O’Brien‘s home after a neighbor called 911 after she saw flames coming from the house.
