Maximum Rock N Roll, Dec ’89

“On September 9, 1989, 33 year old G.G. Allin, self proclaimed leader of the “most violent rock and roll band in the country,” was arrested in Oaklawn, Illinois upon discovery of several warrants for his arrest that had been issued last May by the Office of Wastenaw County Prosecuting Attorney William F. Delhey. G.G. was transported to Cook County Jail in Chicago while the Ann Arbor police were notified. G.G. waived extradition and was transported to Wastenaw County Correctional facility in Ann Arbor, Michigan where he remains, unable to post a rather substantial cash bond.The misdemeanour warrants of indecent exposure and assault and battery were in connection with an unscheduled performance by G.G. and his band the “Disappointments” in a

University of Michigan dormitory. Witnesses told police that G.G. had masturbated, kicked a U of M woman student in the stomach and hit another student with a chair. A felony warrant also was issued charging Allin with assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder, stemming from a separate incident in which police allege that G.G. Allin beat and burned a 25 year old Ann Arbor woman so severely that she spent 12 days in the University of Michigan Hospital. According to police, doctors said the victim’s extensive leg burns were the result of exposure to flame or extreme heat for a period of at least 20 minutes.

On September 20 G.G. Allin appeared in front of 15th District Court Judge George W. Alexander for examination on the charge of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder. The examination was adjourned when R. William Schooley, a court appointed public defender who had spent more than two hours interviewing G.G., asked Judge Alexander for a delay so his client could be examined at the Center For Forensic Psychiatry at the Ypsilanti Regional Psychiatric Hospital. Assistant Prosecutor Larry Burgess had no objection to the adjournment and Alexander ordered G.G. Allin to submit to the examination.

G.G. Allin was found competent to stand trial and faces preliminary examination on the assault with intent charge on October 25, 1989.” 1)
