Dan Spitz's Wife Says She Won't Press Charges
Well, that’s good news.
Looks like the last thing Dan Spitz, formerly of Anthrax, needs is fucking criminal charges hanging over him, and lawyer’s fees to pay.
Candi Spitz, the wife of the Red Lamb guitarist, says that she will not press charges against her husband for allegedly assaulting her on Christmas morning.
The 50-year-old musician was arrested at the couple’s home in Lake Worth, Florida, when Candi’s mother called 911 to report he was trying to choke his wife.
“I’m not planning on pursuing this in court,” Candi, 38, is quoted as saying. “This was a big misunderstanding. My mom should’ve never called 911.”
She adds: “[Dan and I] were separated for a week last year, and Christmas Eve was the first anniversary.
“The stress level at home has been astronomical. Our children are both autistic and Dan may have early onset Parkinson’s Disease. We were all drinking wine, and he just snapped.”
According to Candi, the confrontation happened when her husband started packing her bags, and she stood in his way.
“No matter what’s in the police report,” Candi says, “he never hit me or tried to harm me. He did shove me, and unfortunately I bruised my shoulder.
“But come on: He’s 5 feet tall and 100 pounds all wet. And I kick box. He could never harm me if he tried.”
That, I believe.
Nice of her to putting her husband down like that. Somehow it all makes sense now.
