Ex-Weedeater Drummer Michael Kirkum Arrested For Putting Meth In His Wife’s Drink

According to WECT News 6, ex-Weedeater drummer Michael Kirkum has been arrested for allegedly putting meth in his wife’s rum. The 47-year-old is facing charges of secret assault, assault on a female, resisting arrest, and two counts of misdemeanor child abuse.

Kirkum‘s wife, who recently hired a divorce lawyer, told police that her drink had an odd bitter taste and that she began worrying after having insomnia for a day and a half. She ultimately went to the hospital, where she tested positive for methamphetamine.

Authorities were sent to a residence in North Carolina, where Kirkum allegedly answered the door with a gun. He then tried to escape before getting caught. The police will be testing the rum for drugs and if it is positive, Kirkum may face further charges. His bond is currently set at $100,000.

Weedeater Drummer Carlos Denogean Passes Away

Weedeater drummer Carlos Denogean has passed away. An official cause of death has yet to be revealed.

The band commented:

“Hi everyone,

There is no easy way to say this. Our dear friend and bandmate Carlos Denogean passed away yesterday. It is with a heavy heart and intense sadness that we bring you this unfortunate news. He left this world far too soon and will be missed immensely by all of us.

Anyone that knew Carlos was enamored by his kindness and his warm personality. He was an incredibly talented musician and a real joy to be around. He brought something truly special to the band and we all loved working with him.

We simply cannot express how devastated we are by this loss. We don’t know any details at this time and we ask that you please leave us to grieve now along with Carlos‘ family. Thank you for all of your kind wishes. Cherish what you have while you have it.
