All the names in this story are just so, so perfect: The band? Black Sabbath. The band member? Geezer Butler. The location? Death Valley. Sabbath's 65-year-old bass player was arrested this week for getting into a fight in a saloon in Death Valley because of course he did.
"Sheriff's dispatch received a call regarding a verbal and physical altercation that took place at the Corkscrew Saloon located at the Furnace Creek Ranch property in Death Valley national park," a police press statement reads. "It was determined that there had been an argument that escalated into a physical confrontation — resulting in an individual being struck, and a broken window. Terence Michael Butler, a 65-year old man from Beverly Hills, California, was arrested for misdemeanor assault, public intoxication and vandalism. Butler was booked into the Inyo County jail and released after detox and citation." Keep on rocking.
