Not much a twist here: Flanagan and his lawyers are saying last Friday night’s stabbing and biting in the VIP section of New York’s Webster Hall was in self-defense. They say they will explain more soon in an interview with New York Natives. From New York Natives (via Brooklyn Vegan):
Cro-Mags founder, Harley Flanagan himself and his attorney have told nynatives.com exclusively in a statement that everything that happened on July 6th at the CBGB‘s Festival Cro-Mags show at Webster Hall happened in “self defense.” Harley was not the aggressor and any and all of his actions were in self defense. This statement is in direct conflict with all major media reports covering the events which happened that night.
