BOWLING GREEN — The lead singer and drum technician for hard rock band Of Mice & Men are scheduled to be back in court following their felonious assault arrests.
Vocalist Austin Carlile, 25, of Huntington Beach, Calif. and drum technician Loniel Robinson II, 27, of Escondido, Calif., were arraigned this week in Bowling Green Municipal Court and scheduled to appear again April 15.
The two were arrested on felonious assault charges after an incident at about 2:50 a.m. March 30, that occurred shortly after a concert they held at the Clazel Theatre in Bowling Green. An attorney for the pair claims they were defending a woman when the incident happened.
A police report states a fight broke out on Main Street between two groups as band members were leaving the venue. Mr. Robinson allegedly punched Joshua Diloreti, 22, of Bowling Green, who appeared to hit his head on a building as he fell to the ground. A witness told police Mr. Robinson continued to punch the man while he was on the ground and that Mr. Carlile kicked him.
Mr. Robinson told police he got involved in the altercation because Mr. Diloreti was arguing with a woman, and he then defended himself.
Mr. Diloreti’s nasal bone was fractured, according to the police report, and he was taken to Wood County Hospital and released.
Both suspects posted $25,000 bonds Monday. Their attorney, Scott Coon, said he is looking into the incident to get a “complete understanding of what happened.”
