MIDDLETOWN, N.J. -- Former SKID ROW lead singer Sebastian Bach was charged with making terroristic threats and drug possession after a dispute with a bartender at a restaurant.

Bach, 33, whose real name is Sebastian Bierk, was released Thursday on $10,000 bail on the charges, which also included disorderly conduct, possession of under 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Authorities said Bach was at the Lincroft Inn on Wednesday night when he went outside with a drink. He became angry when a bartender told him he had to come back inside, police said.

Bach told police who arrived at the restaurant that he was going to return to his Middletown home, get a gun and shoot a bartender and others in the bar area, authorities said.

At police headquarters, Bach became verbally abusive when a detective attempted to explain the charges against him and continued to make threats against the bartender, police said.

Police said that when Bach was asked if he understood the charges, he replied: "Yeah, because I smoked a lot of weed."

Bach is the host of VH1's Forever Wild series. Bach's manager, Carol Kaye, declined to comment.
