    Here's something to sink your teeth into! A man claiming to be a vampire punched a member of American Fangs –how's that for irony?- while the band was playing on Tuesday, May 14, at the La Crosse Center. The vamp also drove a barricade through a window of the tour bus, according to police reports.

    Edward Cullen, he is not! Eddie Culls is a gent. This guy? Well…

    …Scott Mehtala, 23, told cops he was high on heroin when he assaulted guitarist Nik Slimp of American Fangs after he was confronted about smashing the window at around 10PM. The vamp tried to run, but was tackled by another guitarist until police arrived, according to a local paper.

    Slimp suffered a chipped fang –sorry, we had to!- and needed stitches.

    Mehtala claimed, "I'm a vampire."

    Mehtala also said he was "jumped by vampires," who were members of Hollywood Undead, a band also playing that night.

    The self-proclaimed bloodsucker was delusional, asking where his tattoos were and declaring that he feared for his safety and a bunch of other malarkey.

    He faced charges of substantial battery, disorderly conduct and two counts of criminal damage to property.

    How ironic that this happened to American Fangs? We hope Slimp's tooth is all fixed.

    Read up about the band in our Take Aim sesh next week.
