Former Anthrax Singer Dan Nelson Pleads Guilty To Assaulting Two Elderly Men

According to MetalSucks, Dan Nelson has pleaded guilty to assaulting two elderly men. This news comes after the ex-Anthrax vocalist was arrested following an incident at the Aloft Hotel in New York City on August 31, 2019.

The victims, 74-year-old James Paolino and 73-year-old Philip Falcone, were at Nelson’s concert supporting their friend who was playing drums for the singer. At the time, Paolino said the vocalist appeared very intoxicated onstage.

After the show, Paolino and Falcone were in an elevator with Nelson and the singer allegedly attacked them after Paolino told him: “You had a rough night.” Paolino told Daily News the following:

“He started kicking me and punching me in the head. These were real MMA kicks. He knocked me down. I’m on the floor bleeding. He broke my glasses and I knew the next kicks were coming for my head. I’m helpless.”

Falcone added:

“I’m still shaking. It was very traumatizing. He knocked my hearing aids out. This guy is an animal.”

Nelson turned himself in at the 115th Precinct in Jackson Heights, Queens, on September 11, 2019. He then appeared in court on January 17, 2020 where he pleaded guilty to one count of second degree assault for injuring a victim aged 65 or older and one count of assault of recklessly causing physical injury. He is expected to be sentenced on April 3.
