Abominable Iron Sloth frontman jailed

Saturday, November 12, 2011 8:40 PM PT


In one of the stranger incidents we've detailed on this site, Justin Godfrey, mastermind (and guitarist/vocalist) of The Abominable Iron Sloth, was jailed late last month under bizarre circumstances.

On October 27th, the Oroville, California Police Department received a call from Godfrey, who told told them that he was the "Angel of Death" and revealed that he was on the porch of his home with an assault weapon. He also told dispatchers that he had eaten mushrooms.

When the police arrived, Godrey peacefully put his weaspon down and was taken into custody. According to Sheriff's Sgt. Steve Collins, Godrey's conversations with police "centered on the end of the world and what things are going to transpire."

Godfrey was taken to Butte County Jail and charged with several felonies, including unlawful assault weapon activity and possession of an assault weapon. His bail was set at $30,000, and as far as we know, he is still in custody.

Will Haven respect notwithstanding, dude looked like a tweaked out 90s nu metal/emo dude hybrid tool when I saw them a couple years back. Worst part of that band live, 'mastermind' or not.
