Black Sabbath's Geezer Butler Arrested After Bar Fight

Black Sabbath bass player Geezer Butler was reportedly arrested on charges of misdemeanor assault, public intoxication and vandalism after he was allegedly in a bar fight in Death Valley, Ca on Tuesday (Jan. 27). A man matching the description of the metal legend, real name Terence Michael Butler, reportedly got into an altercation at the Corkscrew Saloon where an unnamed individual was "struck" and a window was broken, according to a statement issued by the Inyo County Sheriff's department. The department's Public Information Officer Carma Roper released the following details, "Shortly after midnight on January 27th Sheriff's Dispatch received a call regarding a verbal and physical altercation that took place at the Corkscrew Saloon located at the Furnace Creek Ranch property in Death Valley National Park. "After the Inyo County Sheriff's Deputy arrived on scene and interviewed witnesses it was determined that there had been an argument that escalated into a physical confrontation - resulting in an individual being struck, and a broken window. "Terence Michael Butler a 65-year old man from Beverly Hills, CA was arrested for misdemeanor assault, public intoxication and vandalism. Butler was booked into the Inyo County Jail and released after detox and citation." As you can see from the statement, while the age and name of the person arrested does match the Black Sabbath star, the department did not confirm that it was indeed Geezer Butler, who lists his Los Angeles area residence as being in Hollywood, Ca on his Twitter account. At press time there was no word from Geezer or the Black Sabbath camp about the arrest and his last social media posts confirmed that he was in Southern California earlier this week.
