Cro-Mag thrashes the rap
Harley Flanagan, the bassist and co-founder of the New York hardcore band the Cro-Mags, had assault charges against him dropped last Friday. Flanagan had been arrested at a hardcore concert in Webster Hall last July and was accused of stabbing and biting two members of the band, with whom he has had a running feud.
After the charges were dropped during a hearing in Manhattan Criminal Court last Friday, Flanagan’s lawyer, Sean Parmenter, said that prosecutors didn’t have enough evidence to prove the accusations beyond a reasonable doubt.
In the photo, Flanagan is showing a gash and swelling on his leg from a stab wound that required 30 stitches — one of the injuries he suffered during the fight.
