Ill Nino vocalist arrested for domestic battery

Cristian Machado, vocalist of Ill Niño (or at least one version of the fractured band), was arrested earlier this month on charges of domestic battery. The arrest allegedly took place on August 9 in Temecula, California, with the charges categorized as "crime of battery against a spouse or cohabitant, also known as misdemeanor domestic violence." Originally booked into a detention facility, the 45-year-old Machado was released on bail hours later, with a hearing scheduled in October. Earlier today, Machado issued a video statement via Facebook in which he called the allegations "100% false" and "premeditated." You can watch the video below. Machado also threatened his accusers with "massive legal retribution." [via MetalSucks]
