We all remember that Vektor's frontman David Disanto was arrested recently after throwing a beer at a Christian protester. He was released on Tuesday and has now given his side of the story and new insight on what happened at the Scion Rock Fest.

He posted the following statement: "Hey everybody, David here. I've spent the past few days settling into 'normal' life and enjoying being home, so even though the coals may have cooled a bit since this weekend, I wanted to give my side of the story. A lot has been said about what happened, and I just want to clarify a few things. I did not haul out and throw a beer bottle at someone. I was around someone who I felt was antagonizing an event and people I cared about. I was annoyed, and I had a beer in my hand. (Something I'm sure many of you can relate to.) What I did was a momentary lapse in judgment, nothing more, nothing less."

"I'm not some meathead or asshole who would pick on someone for their beliefs. I don't give a shit what anyone's personal beliefs are (unless their beliefs include hatred towards a specific gender, race, or sexual orientation - those people are assholes). What the protester was doing wasn't right - but now that I look back on it, what I did wasn't right either. I do believe that people have the right to protest, but I guess I draw the line when it borders on insanity. People who show up at a public gathering spouting their extremist beliefs would better serve society in a mental institution."

"What I learned from this was that nobody should try to spread their message by antagonizing other people. I didn't change his mind, and he didn't change mine. Vektor has always been about spreading the truth of science, the errors of mankind, and thinking for yourself. Organized religion doesn't always mesh with what we stand for. In a way, I hope that this at least gets people thinking about the problem we have with communicating with each other. There are a lot of things that I feel strongly about. That's why I write the lyrics I do - and I'm stoked when fans (like all of you) find that message and support it. However, I'm not going to go to a church and start blasting 'Dark Creations, Dead Creators' at the people there, haha."

"And, for the record, being in jail FUCKING SUCKS, especially when you're the only longhair in the joint, haha. I was arrested at 10pm on Saturday, and wasn't released until 5am Tuesday morning. I got seriously lucky with the judge and the public attorney assigned to my case (hence my charges getting dropped), and I escaped unharmed (no horror stories here). I made a stand for what I believe in, and there were consequences. It happens."

"Anyway, I guess I've said enough. I do want to thank everybody out there for having my back (all the 'FREE DAVE!' posts have been cracking me up, haha). Honestly, I had no idea word would spread like it did. I also want to thank my kick-ass wife Katy for supporting me while I was cut off from the outside world, and going ape-shit on everyone at the jail in order to expedite my release. Alright then! That's that. I look forward to seeing all you humanoids the next time Vektor invades your town, and in three weeks we will be making our debut in Europe at Hellfest! Fuck Yeah! Sci fi or die FI!"

So, what was he initially charged for? Beer throwing? At least some people listened to Vektor because of this.

Thank you for not including Hindus in your humorous judgement, you know us elephant worshippers really are a peaceful people. May you be blessed with THC-filled soma and monkey gods with 30 foot penises all the days of your life

There's a lot of Mormons out here in Utah but I don't count myself among 'em. Gotta be careful with all religions, they all have the potential of screwing people up. Oh yea, I do have the internet.

What a horrible thing to say....that Christians deserve to be in a mental institution. But hey! He's all about "thinking for yourself" doing your thing....
I know do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law? The whole satanic creed. How can one trust him and where's the other side of the story?
Who belongs in a mental institution now?
Too bad science came about from Christianity in the first place, before it was corrupted by your master.

He actually said that Christians who should be in a mental institution, should be in a mental institution. Don't read what you want to read.
