Pat O’Brien, 53, of Cannibal Corpse, was arrested earlier this month on charges of burglary with assault, and aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, just after his Northdale, Florida home caught fire “with exploding ammunition inside”. According to the arrest report, O’Brien entered a home less than a half-mile away from his house on Monday evening. The two residents inside, who neither knew O’Brien nor gave him permission to enter their home, asked him to leave, but he just ignored them. As they continued, O’Brien pushed a woman down and ran do hide in their backyard. Deputies arrived after the couple had called 911. After the deputy had commanded O’Brien multiple times to surrender, O’Brien suddenly lunged at the officer with a knife. O’Brien was tasered multiple times before being placed in handcuffs. (Source)

Both charges against O’Brien are considered first degree felonies in the state of Florida, which could land him in prison for 30 years to life, with a $10,000 fine.

Concerning their tour dates, Cannibal Corpse informed fans in another recent tweet that, “all Cannibal Corpse touring will happen as planned, and all shows will be played.”
