The following information has been issued further to the news released earlier today:
According to BocaNewsNow.com, Rebecca McBrain — wife of IRON MAIDEN drummer Nicko McBrain — is due in court on May 3 to defend herself against allegations that she attempted to stab her husband, then threw logs at him at their Boca Raton, Florida home.
As reported on BLABBERMOUTH.NET earlier today, Rebecca McBrain, 50, was arrested on February 24 and charged with battery after she allegedly tried to stab her husband with a decorative lance. Although the stabbing attempt failed, Rebecca was allegedly successful in hitting Nicko with logs that had been sitting in a firepit behind the house, causing minor injuries. She was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail and later released on bond.
She has entered a plea of “not guilty.”
On March 2, Nicko McBrain performed at The Classic Rock & Roll Party at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. Proceeds from the event went to HomeSafe, a non-profit organization helping society’s most vulnerable residents — victims of severe child abuse and domestic violence in Palm Beach County and South Florida.
