-- As previously reported, Kidz In The Hall frontman Naledge was arrested in Tempe, Arizona over the weekend
, after police say he interfered with a police investigation, following a fight.
The group's management released a statement Wednesday (July 30), clearing up some of the unknown details regarding the incident.
Originally, it was rumored that the group's other half, Double-O, had become involved in a fight with bouncers of the Cherry Lounge & Pit nightclub, in which Naledge was taking photos of, but nothing had been confirmed.
Now, management says some of that is true. At least, the assault part. They say that Double-O was assaulted and badly injured after a fight between himself and several bouncers, and later hospitalized due to the incident.
"Double-O was assaulted by several bouncers early Saturday morning, July 26, while inside a nightclub in Tempe, AZ, following a Kidz In The Hall performance," management said in a statement. "Group member and friend Naledge, who did not witness the assault on Double-O, was arrested outside of the club. Naledge's attempt to get medical assistance for Double-O was misconstrued as a hinderence to the investigation."
"Reports that no injuries were sustained are false, as Double-O was taken to the hospital with multiple injuries from the excessive force used by club security," the statement continued.
According to the group, Double-O underwent surgery for one of his injuries since then, and is currently in the hospital, but in stable condition.
The duo says they've never experienced anything like this while on tour over the last two years, which they say has included 200+ sows in 10 countries.
"[Kidz In The Hall has] never before been involved in any altercation, big or small, with club or concert security, or police officers," management said in their statement, regarding past performances.
The duo is currently on the road for the Rock The Bells music festival, in support of their most recent album, The In Crowd.
However, at press time, it is unclear if they plan to continue, given Double-O's current injuries.
