Slipknot's Mick Thomson Charged Following Knife Fight with Brother
Earlier this month, Slipknot guitarist Mick Thomson (a.k.a. "Number Seven") made headlines when he got into a violent, drunken brawl with his younger brother Andrew. The fight ended with Mick getting stabbed in the head. Now, both brothers have been charged.

As The Hollywood Reporter explains, Clive Police Department Chief Michael Venema charged both the 41-year-old Mick and 35-year-old Andrew with disorderly conduct by fighting.

Initial reports explained that the two were found fighting at the Slipknot guitarist's house in the wee hours of the morning of March 11. The fight spilled onto the front lawn, where Mick was found with a knife wound in the back of his head.

The Thomson brothers are due in court on March 30. Slipknot's enormous North American tour, on the other hand, kicks off in April.
