Quicksand guitarist arrested for shoplifting

Quicksand guitar player Tom Capone Quicksand guitarist Tom Capone was allegedly arrested earlier this week, forcing the band to perform their Phoenix, Arizona show as a three-piece. Capone, age 47, was reportedly booked in Maricopa County, AZ on Tuesday, September 12 on charges of "shoplifting-concealment" and "resist arrest-physical force." The arrest made Capone unavailable for the band's show later that day at the Crescent Ballroom. No further information is currently available. UPDATE: According to court documents, Capone stole 43 items from a CVS pharmacy in Phoenix, AZ. A "probable cause statement" reads as follows:
"On 09/12/17 at approximately 16:20 hours the defendant was observed on CCTV concealing merchandise at the CVS located at 50 W. Jefferson. CVS staff observed the defendant conceal items totaling 43 into his backpack and short pockets, and later passing all points of sale. CVS staff alerted an officer working off-duty at the City Scape Plaza in full Phoenix uniform. The arresting officer went to contact the defendant ouside and identified himself as Phoenix PD, ordering the defendant to stop. The defendant refused and continued to walk northbound when the arresting officer grabbed the defendant by the arm. The defendant immediately attempted to break the officer's grasp and flee, resulting in the arresting officer taking the defendant to the ground. Once on the ground the defendant resisted the arresting officer's efforts to place him under arrest where private security later ran to the scene to aid the officer. The defendant was then successfully placed under arrest with his hands cuffed to the rear. The arresting officer suffered a cut to his right elbow as well. During the Mirandized interview the defendant admitted to the shoplifting and resisting arrest. The defendant was identified by his New York license and was later booked in the Fourth Ave. jail."
Capone was eventually released from jail and is scheduled to appear at a status conference hearing on September 27, followed by an October 3 preliminary hearing, both in Phoenix. Meanwhile, Quicksand has revealed that Capone has exited the band's current tour to "work on his health":
"As some of you have noticed, we played our show this past Tuesday in Phoenix as a 3 piece. When we began working on new music in the Fall of 2016, Tom wasn't in a good place health wise. We wrote and recorded Interiors with the three of us. Flash forward to the Summer of 2017, the record was done and we were planning its release and the corresponding tours. Tom was in a much better place, and the four of us began rehearsing for the forthcoming tour. We were happy to be playing with him again and looked forward to the future. After a week of some amazing shows, the road has proved to be a difficult environment for Tom who's headed home to work on his health. We wish him all the best, and thank you all for your continued support."

They should really offer an array of Instagram filters for celeb booking photos, since they get released to the public eventually.

This dude worked at a guitar shop in NY and I heard he stole guitars every week by taking out the cardboard boxes and leaving a guitar or 2 in there.

anonymous 9/15/2017 9:58:53 PM

This dude worked at a guitar shop in NY and I heard he stole guitars every week by taking out the cardboard boxes and leaving a guitar or 2 in there. I used to do shipping at a music instrument store, and I thought about trying this all the time. I thought better though. Seemed way too easy.

anonymous 9/16/2017 8:23:58 AM

Being a criminal mastermind obviously runs in the Capone family

anonymous 9/18/2017 7:21:19 PM

He obviously has a problem that's beyond shoplifting. Be a fcking human and stop shitting on him and support him to find recovery. None of you would be commenting if his music never touched you. Have a heart for a broker her in need
