Cannibal Corpse guitarist Pat O’Brien suffered a psychotic episode last week when he warned relatives of “the rapture” and that “aliens have landed.”
The guitarist was arrested last Monday for burglary and assaulting police. At the time of his arrest, his Florida home was also burning down. When firefighters were able to put out the flames, they found an arsenal of weapons that included 10 semiautomatic rifles, 50 shotguns, 20 handguns and two flamethrowers.
Police reported rounds of ammunition exploding during the fire, no injuries were reported.
The band is currently on tour as a supporting act with Slayer.
O’Brien was released on $50,000 bail.
