Crazy Town Singer Shifty Shellshock Arrested For DUI

Singer Shifty Shellshock (real name: Seth Brooks Binzer) has been detained for DUI, according to TMZ, while California rap-rock band Crazy Town has been dropped off (hed)p.e.’sNu-Metal Madness 2″ U.S. tour as a result of fights inside the band.

The incident specifically happened on Tuesday, April 25, at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Following the band’s performance at the Boathouse Waterway Bar & Grill in Myrtle Beach two days earlier (on April 23), Shellshock and current co-vocalist Bobby Reeves got into a fight. ThePRP claims that the confrontation started because Shellshock skipped the gig, leaving Reeves in charge and expressing his rage at Shifty during the performance. I’m trying my best,” along with a disagreement over money.

Later, Crazy Town was taken off of (hed)p.e.’s tour.

As Consequence also notes, Shellshock was arrested on April 25 after “police received a call about a possible drunk driver in a black SUV who seemed to be falling asleep at the wheel.” Consequence also obtained the official police report (prepared by Officer C.J. Contino), which reads:


On April 25th, 2023, at approximately 1330 hours I responded to the area of 33d Ave N and Kings Kwy in reference to a possible drunk driver. A be on the lookout (BOLO) came over from North Myrtle Beach about a black in color SUV, with a California tag, traveling into the city limits of myrtle beach, supposedly, all over the road failing to maintain its lane of travel. A short time later, myrtle beach dispatch received a call about a black in color SUV, with a California tag, in the area of 82nd Pky and Kings Hwy. The caller was stating that the driver was falling asleep behind the wheel at the red light and, while driving, the vehicle was having trouble staying in its lane of travel. Officer Mackin was first to locate the vehicle when the call came in. Officer Mackin stated he observed the vehicle driving and showed signs of the driver being impaired. I spoke to the offender as he was in the driver seat at the time of the traffic stop and nobody else was in the vehicle. The offender had very lethargic movement and slurred speech. Due to the offender showing signs of impairment and officer Mackin’s observation, I asked the offender to take the standard field sobriety test (SFST). The offender stated he would take the test. At the conclusion of the test there were enough visible clues to indicate the offender was impaired while driving. He was placed under arrest for driving under the influence and he was transported to the Myrtle Beach jail.

Consequence also mentions that Shellshock’s corresponding mugshot “describes [his] blood-alcohol level and status as ‘less than .10, second offense.’”

Unfortunately, NME clarifies, Shellshock has a history of substance abuse problems and assault violations. For instance, he was arrested – and later released – for a DUI in Los Angeles back in July 2022. Ten years earlier, he was “convicted of cocaine possession and domestic violence charges against his girlfriend.”

Of course, his battles with addiction have been showcased on TV shows such as Celebrity Rehab and Sober House, too.
