A two-minute video report from WKRN-TV in Nashville has been issued on the arrest of former KISS guitarist Vinnie Vincent (Vincent John Cusano). A booking officer at the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center confirmed Vinnie Vincent, whose real name is Vincent John Cusano, was charged with one count of aggravated assault on Saturday.
Diane Cusano, Vincent Cusano’s wife, showed up at the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office Saturday covered in blood and reportedly intoxicated, according to the RCSO incident report. Authorities immediately called an ambulance to transport Cusano to Middle Tennessee Medical Center here in Murfreesboro. Cusano explained she had been in an argument with her husband over a woman he had been talking to, the report reads.
During the argument Cusano said her husband told her to “get the (expletive) out of the house” and then got physically violent, smacking her in the face, grabbing her by the hair and throwing her on the ground, according to the report. She claims her husband then dragged her through a pile of glass from a broken plate that was on the floor before the argument started. When police later tried to interview Vincent Cusano about the incident, he would not make any statements, according to the report.
Booking records from the detention center show Cusano was booked into the jail at 11:33 p.m. Saturday. He was released at 11:27 a.m. Sunday after posting $10,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court June 23rd.
An investigation is underway in regards to the remains of four dogs found in containers on the property. Diane Cusano reportedly had said that one of their more aggressive dogs had killed them in the past, but there was no mention of why the remains were stored in containers.
