HIM - Ville Valo Arrested For Threatening Neighbor

According to the Finnish tabloid newspaper Iltalehti, HIM. frontman Ville Valo was taken into custody by the Finnish police over the weekend for allegedly threatening to kill his neighbor and resisting arrest.

At approximately 2:30 in the morning Monday morning (Feb. 6), Valo allegedly became belligerent and violent while spending time at his apartment building, which is located in the Eira district of Helsinki. For reasons that are unclear, Ville is said to have thrown a flower pot at his neighbor's door, after which he was confronted by his neighbor and a brawl ensued. The police were called by the neighbor's wife and two officers came to the scene but were unable to calm Valo down, who reportedly had to be restrained with handcuffs.

Valo, 29, spent the night in police custody and reportedly admitted threatening the neighbor but failed to provide a clear motive for his actions.

No injuries were reported in the incident, although the neighbor's door did suffer some minor damage.

According to Iltalehti, Valo was involved in previous disturbances within the same housing organization.

The neighbors refused to comment the issue, according to the report.
