Audience Members Hurt When Singer Throws Microphone Stand During Concert At Six Flags
The rock star antics of a band playing Six Flags Great Adventure this weekend left two concert goers with head injuries after the front man decided to throw microphone stands into the crowd.
Jackson police responded Saturday evening to the theme park arena, and arrested 28 year old Ronald Radke, the lead singer of the band Falling In Reverse.
Police say towards the end of the band’s set, Radke was observed throwing several microphone stands off the stage and into the crowd near the front.
The flying equipment hit a 24 year old male who sustained a cut on the top of his head and a 16 year old female suffered a two to three inch laceration on the top of her head and a large bruise on her forehead.
The male concert goer was treated by first aid and denied any additional care, while the female was
transported to Centrastate Hospital for further treatment.
Radke, who is from Glendale, California, was placed under arrest at the scene and transported to police headquarters for processing. He was charged with Simple Assault and Aggravated Assault. Bail
was set at $25,000.00 with a ten percent option. He was released after bail was posted.
