Two people were arrested after a vehicle crashed into the music venue Zydeco in Birmingham, Ala., on Tuesday (Sept. 21), as AL.com reported.

That night, the rock band From Ashes to New had performed at Zydeco during a stop on their current U.S. tour with fellow rockers P.O.D. and others, according to Rock Feed. Footage from the scene shows the front portion of a car lodged in the facade of the building.

Such a video was shared by From Ashes to New’s Matt Brandyberry and subsequently re-shared by fans across social media. In it, he explains what he knew about the accident and the alleged altercation with security that preceded it — it apparently involved a firearm.

Watch the clip down toward the bottom of this post.

“I was on the bus and we got a text from our guitar tech saying, ‘Someone just got ran over,'” Brandyberry says.

He continues, “Apparently, what happened … is this dude got kicked out of our show tonight, and I guess he got mad at the security guard for doing that. I guess they got into a fight and, from what I’m hearing, is someone pulled a gun — security pulled a gun or something like that. And they got into a fight, and then this dude left.”

However, “what ended up happening,” Brandyberry adds, “is after he left, he came back with his car and he tried to run the security guard over. … This dude ran his fucking car into the bar, into the club. … I guess he must’ve hit the security guard, but the security guard seems fine — he’s bleeding, but he seems like he’s fine. But the dude who’s driving the car is mangled.”

The wreck occurred shortly before 10:30PM on Tuesday, AL.com said. “Few details have been released,” the news site added, “but Birmingham police said via tweet that South Precinct officers’ swift response led [to] the capture of two suspects before they could flee.”
