Firefighters originally responded to a call about a fire at O’Brien’s home in Northdale, Florida where ammunition inside the home was exploding as the fire burned. While the house was on fire, the sheriff’s office received a call regarding a burglary at a nearby home.

According to news station WFLA, a police report says that O’Brien entered the family’s home without permission, pushed a woman inside to the ground and went into their backyard. Deputies responding said they found O’Brien hiding “behind a fence near his home,” where he charged at them with a knife. From there, he was taken down and arrested by authorities.

O’Brien is charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling with assault and aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer.

First, wtf. He's set to go out on that massive tour with slayer and he does this?

Second, r/floridaman. Seriously. Drugs are a hell of a drug, which brings me back to 1.

Third, what a f***head. No sense of responsibility. At least wait till you're surrounded by whores when you're on tour to get that kind of f***ed up.

"Charging with a knife", can't wait to hear that track.

Seriously though that's sad, I assume he was tripping balls. Dude is one of the biggest talents in death metal.

@Cynic that does sounds like a great title for a song. On the other hand seeing that video of him at the bail hearing was so weird. A killer tour coming up and a messed up house. Im still having a hard time with this.

What was going on in this guys head to do these things but the house fire, just wondering if he or someone else caused it or him.
Overall not the best of nights in my opinion.
