The hardcore punk musician, who faced charges of second degree assault and criminal possession of a weapon, was let go after prosecution dismissed the case due to insufficient evidence. Despite conflicting claims by those attacked by Flanagan, the ex-band member claimed he wanted to visit the band just to bury the hatchet. Further, Flanagan, who sustained a broken leg in the fight, claimed he was only acting in self-defense, with current Cro-Mags bandmates Mike Couls and William Berario being the first to attack.
