Warrant Distance Themselves From Bad Boy Lane
The current members of heavy rock act WARRANT have distanced themselves from former frontman JANI LANE following his drink driving arrest in Los Angeles.
Lane is facing a charge of driving under the influence (DUI) after he was involved in a minor traffic collision on Wednesday (17Jun09).
The Warrant frontman, 45, was taken into custody by Los Angeles police following the crash in the San Fernando Valley - and his former bandmates want nothing to do with him.
A statement from the group reads, "Jani Lane, who was officially dismissed from the band Warrant in 2008, is in no way affiliated with Warrant at present.
"It is to be known that Jani Lane's actions should not be misrepresented as those of the lead singer of Warrant. Warrant, whose line-up consists of Jerry Dixon, Joey Allen, Erik Turner, Steven Sweet and Robert Mason, express concern for the possible dangers that Mr. Lane's actions pose.
"Warrant wish to avoid any negative opinions and publicity that wrongful association to Mr. Lane might cause, resulting from his poor judgment."
