Current Maylene And The Sons Of Disaster vocalist and original Underoath frontman Dallas Taylor has shared a lengthy Facebook status that alleges he, along with bandmate Jake Duncan, were the subjects of police brutality last night.
According to the statement, Taylor and Duncan were filming intoxicated individuals exiting a restaurant and attempting to fight onlooking police officers. When one of the inebriated pedestrians began to charge towards Taylor, Duncan intervened, but then they were both allegedly attacked by multiple officers.
The statement later goes on to say that while none of the drunken individuals were arrested, Taylor was incarcerated for roughly an hour and Duncan was charged for disorderly conduct.
Taylor’s full statement, which includes information on how to aid him and Duncan, can be found below.
“Please read and share with everyone you know.
Last night 12/12/2015 Dallas Taylor from the southern rock band “Maylene and the Sons of Disaster” was video taping people coming out of a restaurant/dance club drunk trying to fight cops. He started to video tape, and was attacked by one of the drunks. Jake Duncan our guitarist ran over to try and calm the situation and break up the fight. Jake Duncan, and Dallas Taylor were then attacked by police officers and were victims of police brutality. Jake Duncan was repeatedly getting his head slammed in the pavement, and Dallas Taylor was thrown to the ground with his knee cut open. Dallas Taylor was just trying to document the situation as people kept yelling “[email protected]”k your country and F”@K cops”. The cops did not arrest one drunk person or any of the ones that were trying to fight cops. Dallas Taylor was detained for around an hour and Jake Duncan who did nothing wrong in this matter was arrested on Disorderly Conduct. His bail in the picture above was $358.45. Not counting on what it's going to cost getting a lawyer to fight these corrupt cops. Dallas Taylor's phone was also stolen in the altercation. If you could please help us out we would appreciate it. We never ask for help but what happened is wrong and we do not have the money to pay these fees. Any little bit helps.
