JULY 24,1999

On this day, SLASH was arrested at Ocean Way Recording where he and producer Jack Douglas were working on the new Snakepit album. SLASH was charged with domestic abuse in the alleged beating of his former girlfriend. The two had broken up a couple of weeks before. She talked her way into his hotel room by telling the desk clerk she was SLASH's wife. When she got in his room, SLASH was sleeping, and she physically attacked him there. SLASH finally had to defend himself and had the desk clerk call police. This was on the 19th, and the woman filed charges on the 26th. It's clear to us that this woman is obsessed with SLASH and alternately calls him many times a day to go back with her or to threaten him. SLASH awaits a hearing in September where we are confident he will be vindicated.
