Former Meat Puppets bass player CRIS KIRKWOOD must remain in custody on assault charges, despite the fact he was shot during the alleged attack.

A Phoenix, Arizona, judge has ruled that the musician is not only a flight risk, but is also a danger to others, following the incident on 26 December (03).

Kirkwood stands accused of hitting a Phoenix Post Office security guard with a baton - which he took from him during a struggle following a parking dispute with another customer.

The security guard is then said to have shot Kirkwood - who has not yet received notification of when his trial will begin - in the back.
