JUDAS PRIEST Distance Themseves From Former Drummer Over Sex Attack Allegations

February 23, 2003

News of The World, the U.K.'s biggest weekly tabloid, published the following statement in its Feb. 23 edition:

"Following our January 26 article about former JUDAS PRIEST drummer, Dave Holland, being arrested on suspicion of a sex attack, we have been asked to make it clear that he left JUDAS PRIEST 14 years ago and has had no connection with the band since then."

As previously reported, Holland was arrested last month over claims that he carried out a sex attack on a wheelchair-bound 17-year-old teenager who is understood to have the mental age of around 8 or 9. He was released on bail pending further enquiries.
