There are millions of intelligent people out there who also happen to be Iron Maiden fans, but the guy with the Nazi tattoos who was arrested over the weekend in Texas after his friend posted their Iron Maiden tickets on Facebook is not one of them. The guy in question is named Derrick Roseland, and he was arrested on charges of aggravated kidnapping right at his plaza level seat during Iron Maiden’s set at the AT&T Center in San Antonio on Saturday.

And before you feel too sorry for him and his ruined Saturday night, note the swastikas tattooed on both sides of Roseland’s collar bone in this post from the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office announcing the arrest:


Police were led right to Roseland when one of his friends posted a picture of his confirmation email for Iron Maiden tickets on Facebook, along with a seating chart marked with the exact spot where he and his +1 would be sitting. Suspecting that Roseland might be that +1, Bexar County sheriff’s deputies showed up at the concert, and, well—there they were. The circumstances surrounding Roseland being charged with aggravated kidnapping are still unknown, as the case is still open.
