The frontman allegedly punched his mother twice in the head and then tried to run away from police who were called to the property in Sydney. They were forced to use a form of pepper spray to subdue the singer, with one officer reportedly sustaining injuries during the course of trying to arrest him.
Nicholls will appear before Sutherland Local Court tomorrow (October 17). In addition to two charges of domestic assault, he has also been charged with stalking or intimidation, resisting arrest and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
