Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds was recently hospitalized to
due to head injuries. Well according to a new report, which you can read HERE,
the injuries Hinds sustained were the cause of a fight he had with System Of A
Down bass player Shavo Odadjian.
The Las Vegas Weekly provided this account of what happened:
“According to the police report—based on firsthand
accounts and corroborated by hotel-security video footage—an inebriated Hinds
was leaving MandalayBay around 3 a.m. when he
encountered Odadjian and musician William Hudson at the hotel’s west valet
area. Hinds took off his shirt and hit Odadjian with it, then struck Hudson in
both the face and chest, prompting Odadjian to advise Hinds ‘to relax,’ several
times, according to the police report.
The police report then indicates both Odadjian and Hudson punched Hinds in the
face, knocking him to the ground. An unidentified friend of Hinds, who
reportedly witnessed the event, rushed to the musician’s aid and apologized to
Odadjian and Hudson, saying Hinds was ‘just drunk,’ according to the police report.
Odadjian and Hudson were both questioned by police on the scene.”
