From Pitchfork: The good news is Brent Hinds is going to be OK. The bad news is he's kind of a dick when he's drunk. Hinds' beatdown after The MTV VMA came at the hands of System of a Down bassist Shavo Odadjian, and another musician, William Hudson, who were hit in the chest and head several times by Hinds' shirt before force-feeding the singer-guitarist some knuckle-sandwiches. No charges had been filed at press time for Las Vegas Weekly, which originally reported the story, though the police report lists Hudson as a "suspect" and Odadjian as a "witness." Look for VH1's "Most Metal Altercations" special next month!
