Former Queens of the Stone Age bassist Nick Oliveri – he of the bald head and bushy beard- was arrested in Los Angeles on Tuesday night after a two-hour standoff with a SWAT team. A SWAT team? If a SWAT team is called in, there is some serious heavy lifting to be done. So what did Oliveri do?
According to TMZ, the authorities responded to reports of domestic dust up at the musician's LA abode. Oliveri refused to allow the cops to enter his property so the SWAT team was brought in, since it was believed that Oliveri had a high-powered rifle inside. He eventually relented after two hours.
He was then booked on charges of felony domestic violence and released on $100,000 bail.
