The wife of Iron Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain was arrested on domestic battery charges back in February after apparently attempting to stab the heavy metal stickman, in addition to throwing logs at him, at their Boca Raton, Fla., home. Rebecca McBrain is now set to face a judge on May 3 to defend herself against the charges.

Update: The Boca News Now website has altered its story to report that it is now unclear whether the man who was allegedly attacked is Nicko McBrain. The rest of this article has been updated to reflect this new information.

According to a March 10 article from Boca News Now, Rebecca was arrested Feb. 24 when she allegedly tried unsuccessfully to stab two individuals with a decorative lance.

Additionally, she is accused of throwing fire pit logs at the two people, causing minor injuries. She was freed upon posting $3,000 bond after being booked at Palm Beach County Jail.

In an update posted April 17, Boca News Now initially reported that one of the people she assaulted was Nicko himself. However, the website later changed the story to report that it is unclear whether the victim in this case is Nicko. Either way, Rebecca will face a judge May 3 after entering a ‘not guilty’ plea on the charges.

Rebecca and Nicko have been married since the late ’80s, and the drummer played on and produced a solo album called ‘Voyager’ released by his wife in the early 2000s. Listen to one of the songs in the player below.
