It was revealed earlier today that Iron Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain’s wife, Rebecca McBrain, had been arrested on February 24 and charged with battery. According to BocaNewsNow.com, Mrs. McBrain was arrested after allegedly trying to “stab someone in their home with a ‘decorative lance’” in their Boca Raton, FL home and then “threw logs” at the victim, causing minor injuries.
The drummer’s wife was reportedly booked into the Palm Beach County Jail and later released on $3,000 bond. McBrain is said to be due in court on May 3 to defend herself against the allegations made. Initial reports stated that Nicko was the alleged victim in the incident, but now it’s being claimed that the victim’s identity has yet to be revealed.
Considering that this happened back in February, we’re a tad surprised that news of Mrs. McBrain’s (who is 50 years old) is just leaking now. Then again, as Metal Sucks points out, Nicko has had his fair amount of legal trouble in the pas as well.
