Cannibal Corpse guitarist is arrested for stealing a house and threatening the police

Guitarist Pat O’Brien from Cannibal Corpse was arrested for robbery and for threatening a police officer after breaking into a house in Florida. Meanwhile, the guitarist’s own house caught fire.


O’Brien allegedly broke into a house and ran into the yard. When the policemen arrived, the guitarist didn’t obey the orders and threatened one of the agents with a knife. Then the guitarist was knocked over with a taser and taken away.

At the same time, firefighters battled to put out the fire in the house where O’Brien lived. Apparently, the guitarist ran away from home as soon as the firemen arrived. The cause of the fire has not yet been confirmed, but firefighters have had difficulty erasing it because of a “military-style flamethrower” on site.

O’Brien was indicted for assault and for threatening a law enforcement officer with a deadly weapon.
