Cro-Mags co-founder Harley Flanagan had his day in court back in September for the knifing incident that transpired last summer during the inaugural CBGB Festival. But the hearing at 100 Centre was ultimately postponed to December 5.

Last week, Flanagan showed up to court again, and with the same result. Another adjournment, this time until January 23. However, New York Natives believes that the rescheduled hearing is technically beyond the so-called statute of limitations for the Assistand District Attorney to bring the case before a Grand Jury (necessary for criminal indictment). Afterward, the bassist was quoted as saying, “This whole thing is a joke and has become as boring as the people who pretend to represent New York Hardcore these days.”

As we first reported, the bassist entered the VIP area of Webster Hall and slashed Mike “The Gook” Couls twice and William Berardo above the left eye. Flanagan was then tackled into submission mere feet from our perch. NYPD later determined that the weapon of choice was a five-inch blade.
