Five Finger Death Punch singer Ivan Moody arrested for stuff?

Saturday, February 22, 2014 7:13 AM PT
We get a good amount of anonymous news submissions. Interestingly, almost all of them turn out to be accurate. So sometime in the early hours we received a tip that Five Finger Death Punch vocalist Ivan Moody was escorted off a plane in Australia and arrested. The IP address of the person who submitted this is based in Australia, for what it's worth. We obviously have no idea if this is true, but chances are he was indeed arrested for something, so why not? We'll update when we hear something.

"Ivan Moody, vocalist for Five Finger Death Punch was arrested on a Qantas airplane Saturday evening by Australian police. The vocalist was traveling from Brisbane to Sydney after playing the first date of the 2014 Soundwave Festival in Brisbane earlier that day. He appeared to be very intoxicated and tried to sit in first class but was asked to move to his seat shortly after taking off. He assaulted one of the female flight attendants and created a scene when they refused to serve him alcohol. Upon landing two police officers entered the aircraft and escorted him off. From what I understand, charges will be pressed. Don't know if he'll just spend a night in the drunk tank or if things will be more serious. I apologize but I'd like to remain anonymous on this. Do what you will with this information."

UPDATE: Mr. Moody was freely moving about Sydney later in the day, so if this really happened it couldn't have been too serious. We did find a few people on Twitter asking why Moody was escorted from an airplane by police (prior to our blog post), so we're guessing that something did in fact occur, just nothing major.

Apparently 1998 wants its clothing back and is suing him for it.

Lol @ him thinking he should be sitting in first class.

Not true

anonymous 2/22/2014 1:24:02 PM

I heard hes a bit moody.

anonymous 2/22/2014 1:26:52 PM

The only way he is gonna sit in first class in his life is if he forces his way in, so I guess he thought 'fck it'

anonymous 2/22/2014 2:26:13 PM

I guess he showed that flight attendant "the way of the fist" Ha Ha HA zing!!!

Yeah it's bullshit. And aren't metalheads supposed to buck the system and trash the standards anyway? Next thing you haters will be saying is he's too soft, or gone too middle-of-the-road for your standards of edginess. And I've met quite a few obnoxious flight attendants (male and female) that could use some good old fashioned assaulting.

People who wear tapout shirts, have bicep tattoos, post about the WWE network and say things like "aren't you edgy" are all stoked.

whatever you say, stove

anonymous 2/25/2014 3:15:14 PM

this story is falsely 'tipped off'

anonymous 2/27/2014 4:19:41 AM

I was on that plane. This is blown out of proportion. The dude was joking. When he got booted from 1st class he said "whatever you say stove" and kissed the stewardess on the cheek. We were all laughing.

He was arrested last Saturday night in Las Vegas. Check police reports - I am not fabricating this information. He was beating his daughter in the Hilton Hotel.

anonymous 10/22/2015 6:21:48 AM

Ummmm... You are a retard, he beat up his wife.
