Dail, road manager for Detroit rap act Insane Clown Posse, was arrested Tuesday night in Omaha, Neb., for allegedly choking an audience member who was ejected from the group's show.
According to a spokesperson for the Omaha police, concertgoer Thomas P. Goonan was pulled out of the Ranch Bowl by Dail and another member of the band's crew after he held up a T-shirt depicting rival Motor City rapper Eminem and tossed M&M candies at ICP members Shaggy 2-Dope and Violent J.
Once outside, Dail, 27, allegedly "threw [Goonan] against a fence and choked him until he passed out," according to the spokesperson. Once he came to, Goonan reported the incident to police officers at a nearby convenience store. Witnesses confirmed the incidents inside and outside the club, and the police report notes that "the victim had red marks on his neck" when he spoke to the officers.
Dail -- who is the brother of Douglas Dail, the man Eminem (real name: Marshall Mathers) was accused of pulling an unloaded gun on in Royal Oak, Mich., last June -- was booked for misdemeanor assault and battery and released on $1,000 bail. A hearing is pending.
Last month, Mathers pleaded no contest to a felony charge of carrying a concealed weapon and to a misdemeanor charge of brandishing a firearm in public, stemming from the Michigan incident. Sentencing is scheduled for June 5 in that case.
