After being arrested for allegedly kidnapping and gang raping a fan on their tour bus, the members of Decapitated have now issued their first public statement. The group posted this message online via Facebook:

"While we are not perfect human beings, we are not kidnappers, rapists, or criminals. As such, we strongly deny the allegations that have recently been brought against us.

"We ask that everyone please reserve their judgement until a definitive outcome has been reached, as charges have yet to be pressed. Full testimony and evidence will be presented in due time, and we have faith in that process.

"As there is uncertainty regarding a timeline for prospective proceedings and out of respect for fans and promoters, due to the severity of the claims, we have cancelled all planned touring.

"All social media platforms have been temporarily disabled as they have been used as destinations for defamatory and malicious remarks. We would like to point out that the statements in the published police report were given prior to an arrest. At that point, no member of the band was aware of an active warrant being issued."

An in-depth (and extremely graphic) police report detailing the alleged events was also released and can be read here. The band was arrested in Santa Ana, California and is currently awaiting extradition back to Spokane to face criminal charges.

Ahh, what a system. Innocent until proven guilty yet you can be held in jail indefinitely while they figure out what to even charge you with (if anything). Awesome. Working as intended, right?

Coldiem, I could be wrong but I think that's standard procedure for people here on a visa.
