Members of heavy metal band Decapitated arrested for suspected kidnapping in Spokane

Metal band members arrested on suspicion of kidnapping fan after Spokane concert

All four members of Polish heavy metal band Decapitated were arrested on counts of kidnapping on Saturday, September 9 in Santa Ana, CA. "The report was then sent to the Special Victim's Unit for follow up".

Spokane cops contacted their counterparts in Los Angeles County, and the band members were arrested right after a concert in Santa Ana, California at 2am Saturday. The police have officially identified Decapitated as 27-year-old Michael M. Lysejko, 35-year-old Waclaw J. Kieltyka, 31-year-old Rafal T. Piotrowski and 30-year-old Hubert E. Wiecek. 'There was nothing dramatic'. According to the Spokesman-Review, the alleged incident occurred after the band's August 31 concert in Spokane, Wash. The band remains in Los Angeles as they await extradition to Spokane.

Defense attorney Steve Graham of Spokane was hired by the band on Thursday after members became aware of the investigation.

Cops said the musicians were taken into custody without incident, and their lawyer said they'd previously volunteered to surrender.

On a subsequent investigation, SPD looked into the tour dates for the band Decapitated and discovered their next concert was in Santa Ana, California.

The members of a Polish death metal band who were scheduled to play a show in Mesa, Ariz., last night instead found themselves in a Los Angeles County Jail cell.

At the current stage, it appears as though the band are being prepared to be extradited up to Spokane to face charges, with Graham stating the band will not fight this, but will instead return to Spokane willingly. "I made it clear that I could get the guys up [to Spokane] ASAP and they would cooperate", Graham said. The two bands have been touring North America in a series of shows headlined "Double Homicide".
