Tom Gabel, the gravely-voiced singer of punk band Against Me! was was arrested Monday on a battery charge when he slammed a man's head against a coffeeshop counter. Apparently, Gabel was seriously P.O.'ed when he noticed a defaced newspaper story about Against Me! posted up in the bathroom. When 22-year-old Jared Smith asked why Gabel tore down the story, he allegedly hit the innocent bystander and slammed his head. Gabel was later released Tuesday morning on $500 bail. Just imagine if somebody had defaced our interview with Gabel. Could have been much uglier.
