Continuing with today's police blotter, news has surfaced that Dominic Davi, 31-year-old bassist of Fat Wreck Chords punk band Love Equals Death has been arrested on an accusation of rape. Davi was arrested after a show in Fullerton, California, on Mar. 23 and is currently waiting extradition to Philadelphia, where the crime allegedly took place in June 2006, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. From the story:
According to police, a 19-year-old woman from Fairfax, Va., met Davi at the Barbary Club at 951 Frankford Ave. in June 2006. The two, who police describe as acquaintances, left the club together on foot. Davi then allegedly raped the woman behind a factory near the 1100 block of North Delaware Avenue in the Fishtown section of the city.
LED frontman Chon Travis has made the following statement:
"There have been some serious allegations concerning our friend and comrad Dominic Davi. We at camp LED stand by him and hope that this will all clear up soon. We will not pass any judgement on anyone until this is settled and if you have no idea what the hell I am speaking of, then carry on my wayward sons and daughters. May peace be with you."
Davi is the former bassist for Tsunami Bomb, who are now defunct.
