David Silveria has confirmed that he will plead not guilty to the DUI charge issued to him last March by police in Huntington Beach, California. This followed an early-morning fender bender when Silveria rear-ended another car on his way to breakfast. The former Korn drummer insists that he was feeling the effects of a sleeping pill he took the night before. See our original news item below.
Former Korn drummer David Silveria was arrested in Huntington Beach, California, last Sunday for suspicion of driving under the influence. The police took the 34-year-old into custody after his car was pulled over at 10:45 a.m. Silveria recently reappeared onstage with the band Infininika after taking a five-year break from the music business.
UPDATE: Silveria blew a 0.0 on the breathalyzer during his DUI arrest this week, but says cops nailed him anyway over a sleeping pill he took the night before. Silveria was adamant that he had not been drinking. Apparently he suffers from insomnia and took a sleeping pill Saturday night to help him rest. On Sunday morning he was still very tired, and accidentally rear-ended another car on the way to breakfast. He is taking full responsibility for his actions saying, “It was an honest mistake.”
