Skipknot guitarist Mick Thomson has been charged in relation to that fight he had with his brother in which he was stabbed in the head.

Both Mick and his brother Andrew Thomson will appear in court on 30 Mar to face charges of disorderly conduct after police were called to their home in Des Moines after an altercation between the two men turned violent. Both required hospital treatment after the fight.

Despite being stabbed in the back of his head during the fracas, the guitarist is expected to make all upcoming Slipknot shows, which begin with a festival booking in Florida next month.
