Tags: Oblivion Myth
On New Year?s Day, Nashville Metro police arrested 27 year old Oblivion Myth guitarist Chris Selby who is accused of ?dangling a woman off a third floor apartment breezeway? at the Tulip Grove Apartment Complex in Hermitage, TN.
According to police, a call was placed for a disorderly person:
- As the dispatched officer approached the third story landing, Selby grabbed the woman, later identified as Kelia Ramos, by her waist and started to push her over the breezeway railing. Ramos was screaming, ?No, no, pull me in? as she grabbed Selby?s arm.
- The officer pulled out his weapon and ordered Selby to stop, which he did and was then taken into custody without further incident.
- Selby has been charged with attempted first degree murder and was booked into the Metro jail on a $100,000 bond.
A statement posted to Oblivion Myth?s social media pages and official website on January 2nd by front-man Ray LeGrand said,
?It is with absolute shock and disbelief that I find myself writing this statement. About 30 minutes ago my phone started ringing and numerous text messages came to me asking for comment on longtime Oblivion Myth guitarist Chris Selby. This was the first I or any other member of the band were made aware of the situation. We will not be canceling any shows. Keith will be covering Chris? parts and we will go on as a four piece for now?
Oblivion Myth will still perform at the ?Sanctuary From The Streets? benefit at The Rutledge in Nashville, TN on February 15, a food outreach program which provides approximately 4,500 meals per month to those less fortunate in the Nashville area. Additionally, the group serves as a collection and distribution point for seven other organizations who also feed Nashville?s displaced and homeless as well as providing food for 25 families directly.
