You know it's a slow news day when you're following news on TMZ, who reports that David Silveria, Korn's former drummer (1993 to 2006), was arrested in Huntington Beach on 10:45 a.m. Sunday morning.

The 39-year-old Silveria, who just recently joined the rock band INFINIKA, told TMZ that he "blew a 0.0 on the breathalyzer during his DUI arrest this week ... but says cops nailed him anyway over a sleeping pill he took the night before."

He further told TMZ that he "suffers from insomnia and took a sleeping pill Saturday night to help him rest. When he woke up Sunday morning, David says he didn't realize he was still too tired to drive ... and accidentally rear-ended another car on the way to breakfast."  Although cops found no alcohol in Silveria's system, he was still arrested for a DUI.  "It was an honest mistake," he says. We've reached out to Silveria via his new band, and are waiting for a statement. 

Early this year, Silveria went on to say why he left Korn: "They had such bad egos and negative attitudes that I couldn't take it anymore. End of story," he said.

This guy is a FU^*ING tool , I've run into him a few times here in HB and the guy has some major issues going on, I seen him in the parking lot off Main st. and Yorktown shoving his fingers down his throat and the lady he was with grabbing his hand to pull his hands out of his mouth, I know of someone who works at a business where he and his family go to and this person said he flipped them off in the office for no reason at all. The dude was not welcomed back to Korn so he went on a bad mouthing the band spree! His ex-wife use to cheat on this tool with dudes around HB back in the day as well. Most likely he was F'd up when he was busted!
