Travis McCoy Arrested For Striking Crowd Member With Microphone

Travis McCoy lead singer of Gym Class Heroes was arrested on Tuesday and charged with third degree assault after hitting a crowd member that made a racist comment in the head with his microphone. He was released from jail on Wednesday. The incident occurred in Missouri, which was a tour stop for Gym Class Heroes when a crowd member(of the same race as Travis) yelled out "f***ing ignorant n***er" during the show.

Security tried to remove the guy but then Travis decided to hit his ass in the head with the microphone a few times, which you can't too much blame him for his reaction. People these days will take you there! Kudos to Travis.

Travis' statement: "I'm sorry but when someone calls you something that ignorant and that offensive, you have to bash their head in with a microphone."
