Park bans metal shows after Falling In Reverse set

As you may have heard, Falling In Reverse frontman Ronald Radke threw three microphone stands into the crowd (see the end of the video embed below) following the band's performance at the Six Flags' FestEVIL in Jackson, NJ on Saturday night. Unfortunately, two fans were struck in the head by the stands, including a 16 year-old girl who suffered a sizeable laceration on her head and required treatment at a local medical center. As a result, Jackson police charged Radke with assault, though he was later released on $25,000 bail. Meanwhile, Six Glags Great Adventure, the amusement park that hosted the festival, is obviously not pleased. Park spokeswoman Kristin Siebeneicher had the following to say: "This was the first metal show that we've ever had, and will be the last. We have no plans to host another metal show. This performer was completely reckless. He had complete disregard for the safety of his fans. His actions were totally unacceptable. It's not the type of entertainment that we want to be producing."
