A CBGB Festival show at New York's Webster Hall was shut down early last night after founding Cro-Mags bassist Harley Flanagan stabbed and bit current members of the band, according to reports in the New York Post and the New York Times.
Flanagan, a highly visible member of the veteran hardcore band for more than a decade, reportedly forced his way through venue's VIP section and into the band's dressing room, where he stabbed William Berario and Michael Couls with a hunting knife, and bit Berario on the cheek.
Flanagan was eventually subdued by security, handcuffed to a chair by police and wheeled out of the venue.
Berario and Couls were taken to the hospital and treated for their injuries, which were not said to be life-threatening. Flanagan was also taken to the hospital for a broken leg sustained in the effort to subdue him, the Post said, although the New York Times said the attacker, whom it said police would not identify, was not injured.
"We are saddened to learn about the events that occurred last night at Webster Hall," the organizers of the CBGB Festival said in a statement. "Our primary concern is always the safety and experience of New Yorkers, music fans and the general public. Naturally we will fully cooperate with law enforcement while hoping for the speedy recovery of those injured."
