The lead singer of a hardcore punk band called Amen was arrested after allegedly driving his car into about 15 parked cars in Studio City, reports TMZ.

46-year-old Karim Chmielinski, who goes by the stage name Casey Chaos, was taken into custody at about 12:50 this morning. KTLA reports that residents called police after hearing Chmeinlinski tearing through streets around the 12200 block of Hillslope Street and crashing into car after car.

He was later found at his house, after his car was discovered parked going the wrong way on Hillslope.

Chmielinski's blood alcohol lever was reportedly just above 0.08, which is the legal limit in California.
