Ex-Revocation Drummer Accepts $30,000 Settlement

Ex-Revocation Drummer Phil Dubois-Coyne - now drum-tech for Cannibal Corpse - has accepted a $30,000 settlement from the Oklahoma City Council. Dubois-Coyne, suffered a broken arm when police arrested him at a concert afterparty for a ‘Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival‘ stop, early Aug. 8, 2014, at the Downtown Airpark.

The drummer was charged with public drunkenness, disorderly conduct and resisting a police officer. According to a report on the settlement filed by NewsOK Dubois-Coyne was among those chanting ‘fuck the police’ and singing the lyrics of Body Count‘s “Cop Killer” after watching the police arrest another individual.

"I felt this was beginning to incite actions against us and we were easily outnumbered by the crowd," one officer wrote in a crime report.

The arresting officer, Kenneth Lile, reported he first tried to calm Dubois-Coyne down and explained officers were just trying to help an assault victim. He reported Dubois-Coyne leaned in and yelled, "Fuck you, kill 'em all!"

The officer reported he had to take Dubois-Coyne to the ground because the drummer was resisting being handcuffed. "I got him up and he said his arm was broken. I could see his upper left arm did appear broken," the officer wrote. "The crowd around us began to get unruly."

The officer reported Dubois-Coyne "was yelling profanity, insults and threats towards me and my family." He also stated that the crowd had turned ugly and that he was forced to use his taser on an individual to get back to his police car.

"I could see other officers also making it through the crowd and they covered my back," he wrote.

Dubois-Coyne filed a lawsuit against the city and three police officers in 2016, alleging false arrest and excessive force. The settlement arrives ahead of a jury trial which had been set to begin in January in Oklahoma City federal court. More...
