Former Meat Puppets Star Arrested

Former MEAT PUPPETS bass player CRIS KIRKWOOD has been arrested in Phoenix,Arizona, after a post-Christmas incident which left him hospitalised with gunshot wounds.

The 43-year-old rocker is accused of assaulting a guard at a local post office.

Kirkwood is said to have beat the man with his own truncheon during the altercation, which took place after the abusive rocker was asked to leave the branch by the guard, who shot the bass player in self-defence.

He has also been charged with one count of assault with a dangerous weapon at a federal facility. He was arrested on Tuesday (30DEC03) as he left the GOOD SAMARITAN Hospital, where he was taken after being shot last week (26DEC03).
