Recently, there seems to be a lot of breaking the law in the metal-related news. According to Tri-County Sun Times, former Obituary, Six Feet Under and Massacre guitarist Allen West was arrested at the end of March in Lake Panasoffkee, Florida for methamphetamine production and possession.

After the musician called 911 to report that two males broke into his house, "[responding] deputies met with the property owner Allen West in a wooded area next to the residence," the web site reports. "Allen West stated that two male subjects forcibly entered his house by kicking in the front door at which time he fled out the rear and hid in the woods.

"West requested the deputies search his residence for possible subjects. During the search deputies noticed a strong acidic odor emitting from the master bedroom. Deputies then discovered in the master bedroom and bathroom plastic soda bottles with tubing protruding from them. The bottles also had a wet white pasty substance in the bottles and on the bathroom and bedroom counters. These items are commonly used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine."

West's residence was subsequently searched by the Special Investigations Squad, which found "ammonium nitrate, sodium hydroxide (a.k.a. 'Drano'), a corrosive acid, lithium strips and other items commonly used to produce methamphetamine." The lab was dismantled and West was subsequently held on a $40,000 bond.

West, aged 45, is currently incarcerated at the Sumter County Jail in Bushnell, Florida. He has had problems with alcohol abuse over the years and on May 16th, 2007 he was arrested and imprisoned after his fifth DUI offense.

Chris Barnes of Six Feet Under tweeted about the incident: "A sad day for an ex SFU guitarist. Get well bro..."

You put the words out of my mount, exactly.

Alan West certainly has gone off the rails here. Or the full story has not come out, which is typical of the flammin media.

A fuckin free for all downfall, for a top fuckin musician, I love that band Obituary, and have seen them a number of times when they toured.

It absolutely saddens me, when one of the ex-members has truly gone off the rails

It's pretty strange that more money is made in meth than metal.

What a suicidal trap.

So let me get this straight. He told the cops to search his house even though he was running a meth lab out of it? What a donkey...

Damned government throwing people in cells for producing something that others value enough for buying it, what a shitty system

Nothing strange about this whatsoever. What an absurd thing to say.

It's strange for those guys who don't take it.

Not really. Most people understand the potential of the addictive nature of drugs. Failing that people put two and two together and think about why people would risk their livelihood to sell drugs when it could land them in prison. I don't think people do it for the pension and company car somehow.
