System of a Down Beating Puts Rocker in Hospital

(antiMusic) It turns out that Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds' mysterious head injury suffered following the MTV Video Music Awards wasn't inflicted by random thugs, it seems the injuries that landed him in a Las Vegas hospital came courtesy of System of a Down bassist Shavo Odadjian and musician by the name of William Hudson.

A quick refresher for those that do not remember the original report, Hinds suffered brain hemorrhaging, a broken nose, and two black eyes as a result of the beating. The Las Vegas weekly did some digging and found out more about the incident as well as who is involved, they report: "an inebriated Hinds was leaving Mandalay Bay around 3 a.m. when he encountered Odadjian and musician William Hudson at the hotel's west valet area. Hinds took off his shirt and hit Odadjian with it, then struck Hudson in both the face and chest, prompting Odadjian to advise Hinds 'to relax,' several times.

"The police report then indicates both Odadjian and Hudson punched Hinds in the face, knocking him to the ground. An unidentified friend of Hinds, who reportedly witnessed the event, rushed to the musician's aid and apologized to Odadjian and Hudson, saying Hinds was 'just drunk,' according to the police report. Odadjian and Hudson were both questioned by police on the scene. No charges had been filed at press time, though the police report lists Hudson as a 'suspect,' facing a possible charge of 'battery with substantial bodily harm.' The police report lists Odadjian as a 'witness.'" - Read the Las Vegas Weekly report
