Posted by on April 7, 2016

Sockweb-2013There are many bands out there that aren’t your typical five hairy dudes playing music, like our favorite granny in Grindmother or the father/daughter grindcore band Sockweb which features adorable 8 year-old Joanie Young singing high pitched vocals with her multi-instrumentalist dad Adam Young.  Sadly, it seems like things aren’t as cute anymore, as it’s been reported that Adam Young has been arrested for domestic violence.

According to Fox59.com, Young has been arrested for allegedly threatening to cut his girlfriend open and ‘play with her intestines’ plus two counts of intimidation, pointing a firearm, strangulation, four counts of domestic battery, and criminal mischief.

The news outlet  read as follow:

The woman told police Young confined her to their home several days ago. Court documents describe the victim’s account of the alleged abuse she suffered during that time.

According to the victim, Young snapped her glasses in half, stomped on her laptop, slapped her across the face and punched her in the ribs.

He also allegedly pinned her against a dining room wall, and pointed a pistol to her head.

Young also allegedly choked her, threatened to break her neck, and stuffed her head in the oven.

According to the victim, Young placed a knife against her side, and told her he was going to “Slice her open and play with her intestines.”

The victim says she was able to escape when he ordered her to sit on the couch, and she saw that the front door was wide open. The victim told police she ran out the door, and she fled the area yelling for help.

A man in a truck heard her yelling, so he picked her up and dropped her off at the police station. According to police, she was only wearing a tank top and pajama pants, and she was barefoot.

Young was arrested and taken to the Henry County Jail, and will appear in court for a jury trial on July 26th.
