REPORT: New Roadrunner Signing KING 810 Has Two Members Arraigned For October Beating Outside Of Club

Saturday, 14th June 2014

Blabbermouth is reporting Two members of the Flint, Michigan metal band KING 810 were arrested in a connection with the 2013 critical beating of a man outside of a bar in their hometown. The group’s vocalist David Gunn and bassist Eugene Gill, both of whom are 28 years old, were picked up at the Detroit Metro Airport on Thursday (June 12) as they were making their way to the United Kingdom to perform at this year’s Download festival.

Gunn and Gill were arraigned on Friday (June 13) on assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder charges. They are suspected of attacking a man last October and leaving him in critical condition outside The Loft in downtown Flint. A police investigation led to warrants being issued for the two musicians.

Assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder (also known as “assault GBH”) is a felony criminal offense in Michigan, according to Michigan Compiled Law 750.84. Assault GBH carries a potential punishment of up to 10 years in prison, and a fine of not more than $5,000. Previous felony convictions could have the accused facing life in state prison if he or she is charged with assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder as a Habitual Offender.

The pre-trial for Gunn and Gill is scheduled for June 17.

KING 810’s “Proem” EP was made available on iTunes on May 13.
