Slaves Guitarist Stabbing May Be Charged As A Hate Crime

(TeamRock Radio) The man arrested for stabbing Slaves (US) guitarist Alex Lyman is now facing a hate crime charge. KCRA report that Timothy Brownell handed himself into police after stabbing Lyman earlier this week in an unprovoked attack, which left the musician with a 4-inch puncture and slashes to his arms and throat.

Brownell was then arrested on charges of assault with a deadly weapon, which also left Lyman's bandmate Hampton McKnab with a broken hand and Musical Chairs singer Blake Abbey with a 12-inch wound to his arm.

Brownell was released on bail but after investigating online reports in which Lyman claimed he was called a "faggot in skinny jeans," police in Sacramento, California are now looking to charge him with a hate crime.

Officer Justin Brown says: "We took a look at the social media postings and we understand allegations of that nature. We take it very seriously." Read more here.
