Former Anthrax Singer Dan Nelson Arrested For Allegedly Assaulting Two Elderly Men

According to Daily News, Dan Nelson was arrested on felony assault and harassment charges. The ex-Anthrax singer allegedly assaulted two senior citizens following a show at the Aloft Hotel in New York City on August 31.

The alleged victims, 74-year-old James Paolino and 73-year-old Philip Falcone, were at the concert supporting their friend, who was playing drums for Nelson. According Paolino, 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.”

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

The incident reportedly ended after another person in the elevator attacked Nelson to make him to stop. Nelson is now expected to appear in court on October 11. However, his lawyer Marc Isaac is denying the allegations:

“I’ve seen the video, and what they’re saying is not correct. I can tell you that there was no bloody altercation. That’s completely false.”
