Nick Oliveri, Ex-Queens of the Stone Age Bassist, Has SWAT Standoff

TMZ just reported that police were called to the home of ex-Queens of the Stone Age bass player Nick Oliveri after neighbors reported a "disturbance."

It turns out Oliveri had gotten into a fight with his girlfriend the day before and had struck her. She was returning to the home they shared to collect her belongings and move out.

Oliveri got pissed and locked the two inside the apartment. When police arrived, he refused to grant them entry, and the SWAT team was called in.

Oliveri finally relinquished his girlfriend after two hours and gave himself up.

He was booked on felony domestic violence charges and released after posting $100,000 bail.

Smooth move, brother.
