Sebastian Bach Arrested After Bar Biting Incident in Canada

Former Skid Row rocker Sebastian Bach was arrested early Monday morning (Nov. 15) after getting into a bar brawl in Peterborough, Ontario, according to a police report detailing the incident.

Bach, whose real name is Sebastian Bierk, was asked to leave Riley's Old Towne Pub after arguing with a member of the bar's staff. The dispute turned physical when the 42-year-old singer was told that he could not leave the bar with his glass of wine and threw his drink at the front door, shattering the glass.

Police were called to the scene, but before they arrived, Bach allegedly bit the left hand of a bar staffer who was restraining him. When police arrived, the singer was searched and found to be carrying 1.95 grams of marijuana.

Bach is being held on charges of assault, possession of marijuana and mischief and is expected to appear in court today.
