Two disgruntled attendees of a P.O.D. show allegedly crashed a car into the venue they were playing in, after being ejected earlier in the evening.
The show – which took place at the Zydeco Bar in Birmingham, Alabama on Tuesday (September 21) – was cut short when the two suspects allegedly drove a car into the front of the bar before fleeing the scene.
According to Blabbermouth, several attendees of the show reported the driver having been ejected from the club earlier in the evening.
Matt Brandyberry – frontman of From Ashes To New, who opened for P.O.D. – later shared a video explaining the circumstances. “Apparently, what happened was this dude got kicked out of our show tonight. And I guess he got mad at the security guard for doing that,” Brandyberry said in his post on social media.
“This dude ran his fucking car into the bar, into the club… the dude who’s driving the car is mangled. The dude is, like, all messed up.”
