Crazy Town’s Seth Binzer aka Shifty Shellshock was arrested for a DUI on April 25th, just days after making news with his bloody backstage brawl with bandmate Bobby Reeves. Reeves who had been trying to perform alone was fed up with Binzer’s late arrival stating that he was “so mad at Shifty right now” during the show.
Binzer has been battling addiction quite publically for a long time with appearances on shows like “Celebrity Rehab” and “Sober House.” Last year he was arrested for a DUI in Los Angeles and in 2012 he was arrested for battery and cocaine possession. He’s been struggling for a long time and hopefully he’ll be able to get some help.
“On April 25th, 2023, at approximately 1330 hours I responded to the area of 33d Ave N and Kings Kwy in reference to a possible drunk driver. A be on the lookout (BOLO) came over from North Myrtle Beach about a black in color SUV, with a California tag, traveling into the city limits of myrtle beach, supposedly, all over the road failing to maintain its lane of travel,” Officer CJ Contino wrote in the official police report. “A short time later, myrtle beach dispatch received a call about a black in color SUV, with a California tag, in the area of 82nd Pky and Kings Hwy. The caller was stating that the driver was falling asleep behind the wheel at the red light and, while driving, the vehicle was having trouble staying in its lane of travel. Officer Mackin was first to locate the vehicle when the call came in. Officer Mackin stated he observed the vehicle driving and showed signs of the driver being impaired. I spoke to the offender as he was in the driver seat at the time of the traffic stop and nobody else was in the vehicle. The offender had very lethargic movement and slurred speech. Due to the offender showing signs of impairment and officer Mackin’s observation, I asked the offender to take the standard field sobriety test (SFST). The offender stated he would take the test. At the conclusion of the test there were enough visible clues to indicate the offender was impaired while driving. He was placed under arrest for driving under the influence and he was transported to the Myrtle Beach jail.”
Because of everything that’s been going on, Crazy Town has been kicked off the Nu Metal Madness Tour 2 by headliners Hed PE.
