Ronnie Radke, the former Las Vegas musician who used to front local metal act Escape the Fate before starting Falling in Reverse, cannot stay out of trouble.
The Asbury Park Press is reporting that former prison inmate Radke, 28, threw three microphone stands into the crowd at a Six Flags Great Adventure concert Falling in Reverse was headlining in Jackson, New Jersey. Two people were hurt, and Radke was charged with assault and aggravated assault until he was released on $25,000 bail.
Radke not only ruined things for concert attendees — especially the two he hurt — but metal fans in Jackson. The amusement park has said it won't ever stage another metal show.
It's been barely two months since Radke's last arrest. In August, the rocker was arrested for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend at his Glendale, Calif. home. After being hauled in on an outstanding warrant and charged with corporal injury to his girlfriend and false imprisonment, he posted $30,000 bail and was released.
Radke famously served two-and-a-half years in prison after violating his probation from 2006 charges that stemmed from a fight he staged. He didn't draw his weapon (brass knuckles), but other participants unleashed and shot guns; one man died while another was injured. (Later, a third due for prison committed suicide.) Escape the Fate subsequently threw Radke out of the band. In 2008, Radke started serving his time at High Desert State Prison in Indian Springs, before being released in 2011 and proclaiming he was a new man.
