ex-Revocation drummer accepts $30,000 settlement over arrest

Former Revocation drummer Phil Dubois-Coyne has accepted a $30,000 settlement to end his lawsuit over a 2014 arrest in Oklahoma, according to NewsOK. Dubois-Coyne suffered a broken arm while being arrested at a concert after-party in Oklahoma City in August 2014. Police stated that Dubois-Coyne was drunk and chanting anti-police slogans such as "f*ck the police." NewsOK says that one officer said, "I felt this was beginning to incite actions against us and we were easily outnumbered by the crowd." Dubois-Coyne was ultimately charged with "public drunkenness, disorderly conduct and resisting a police officer" and spent 12 hours in jail after his fractured arm was treated in a hospital. He pleaded no contest to the public drunkenness charge and paid a fine of $178. The other charges were later dismissed. In 2016, Dubois-Coyne filed a false arrest and excessive force lawsuit against Oklahoma City and three police officers. A jury trial had been set to commence next month, however, in November the Oklahoma City Council agreed to settle the case for $30,000. The settlement was approved by a federal judge earlier this month. Dubois-Coyne, now 32, left Revocation in 2015 but still plays drums and is a drum tech for Cannibal Corpse. "He's pretty famous with heavy metal rock bands," said his attorney, Holly Hefton. "He's still playing. He had a little bit of deformity to his arm after all this. He has the option of surgery but his doctors have told him that by correcting it he could end up with nerve damage. He's relearning how to play with his situation now."

Lyme disease is nothing. How about you carry Sheetrock every day for 10 years and see what kind of chronic back pain you have. Is your Lyme disease bullshit gonna cause you to start getting legit oxys from the dr? You gonna fruitlessly visit chiropractors for years? Your Lyme disease ain't nothing compared to what real men deal with every day

Can't lift Sheetrock with deformed alligator arm


anonymous 12/29/2017 2:36:15 PM

Broke his precious fcking arm messing around with cops drunk. To be expected. Why don't u fcking work out or lift your own kit once in a while. Eating fcking Frosted Flakes for breakfast and jerking it to cartoons in the back of the cannibal corpse ain't gonna give you enough arm mass to take on a first responder, bitch. Has the fcking nerve to sue 2 years later. Like he sat around fcking stewing about this shit instead of doing curls or at least taking some T to correct his problem


anonymous 12/29/2017 2:37:48 PM

Exactly 0 people care about this guy. I hope the cops break his other arm someday


anonymous 12/29/2017 2:41:34 PM

"Easily outnumbered by the crowd" it was like 5 people standing there, a 50 year old lady, one dude laying on the ground with a broken leg, and others just standing there seein if he was alright. He was shouting "fck police brutality" (ironically) but so what. The cop wanted to send him a message, 30k seems light


anonymous 12/30/2017 10:46:23 PM

Damn you guys ruined the Sheetrock meme real fckin quick


anonymous 12/31/2017 3:32:17 PM
