    Cro-Mags founder and ex-bassist Harley Flanagan was arrested after allegedly attacking current members of the band's current lineup before the first-ever CBGB Festival in NYC.

    The knife pull supposedly took place on July 6 in the VIP room at New York City's Webster Hall, where Cro-Mags were due to perform as part of the first CGBG Festival. Flanagan, whose last stint in the band was back in 2002, is reported to have appeared onsite, brandishing a knife, before allegedly stabbing his replacement Mike "The Gook" Couls. He bit two other members. Yikes! He has anger issues.

    The New York Post reports that Flanagan was arrested at the scene and the injured parties were taken to the hospital. The gig was then canceled. Promoters had this to say about axing the gig: "Our primary concern is always the safety and experience of New Yorkers, music fans and the general public. We don't feel the actions of one person should overshadow four amazing days and nights of events."

    What do you think of this melee and mess?
