Cage The Elephant's Lead Singer Arrested

Cage The Elephant's lead singer recently landed himself in hot water in New York City. Matt Schultz was reported to police by the hotel staff for allegedly brandishing a gun in “a public part” of the hotel in which he was staying. When police arrived, they found Schultz intoxicated and with two loaded guns in his possession. In addition to the guns, police found a number of Polaroids- one of which showed a hand aiming one of the guns.

Police say they also found a number of notes, presumably in Schultz’s handwriting. One of these notes includes a promise that Schultz “will protect (himself) if (he is) attacked.” Schultz was arrested for illegal possession of firearms.
