Tom Angelripper Doing Probation For Alcohol And Weapons
Legendary Sodom frontman Thomas Such (aka Tom Angelripper) was facing two felony charges when he was convicted of hunting without a license and being in possession of an open container back in December. Gelsenkirchen game wardens confiscated all his high-powered rifles and beer cans, jailing him without incident. Over fifty malt-liquor cans were taken into evidence.
Appearing in court on March 31st, Judge Helmut Pferd gave him a suspended two-year sentence, which includes the mandatory completion of 200 hours community service cleaning a downtown disco up after hours and volunteering for PETA. He must also attend daily AA meetings since flunking a UA back in February. As per the sentence, Tom must adhere to a strict 9:00 p.m. curfew, play no gigs with his band and abstain from recording any beer-themed songs with Onkel Tom.
Tom Angelripper currently chairs the 12-Step meeting in downtown Gelsenkirchen, where he has just received his 30-day "Clean and Sober" keychain. Get a list of meeting times by going here. Below are a few of the photos admitted into evidence from the hunting trip in question.
