According to¬†WSMV.com, a call was placed on Tuesday for a disorderly person at the Tulip Grove Apartment Complex in Hermitage, Tennessee. As the dispatched officer approached the third-story landing, he saw a man, later identified as¬†Selby, arguing with a woman,¬†Kelia Ramos, on the breezeway in front of an apartment. The officer said as he was walking up the stairway from the second floor to the third floor,¬†Selby¬†grabbed Ramos¬†by her waist and start to push her over the railing.
Ramos¬†grabbed¬†Selby’s arms and stated, “No, No pull me in.”
Police said¬†Ramos¬†was hanging off the breezeway railing, so the officer pulled out his gun and ordered¬†Selby¬†to pull¬†Ramos¬†back onto the breezeway.
Selby¬†complied and was taken into custody. He was booked into the Metro jail on a $100,000 bond.
Oblivion Myth¬†frontman¬†Ray LeGrand¬†posted a statement to the band’s social media pages and official web site on January 2 in which he said: “It is with absolute shock and disbelief that I find myself writing this statement.
“About 30 minutes ago my phone started ringing and numerous text messages came to me asking for comment on longtime¬†Oblivion Myth guitarist¬†Chris Selby. This was the first I or any other member of the band were made aware of the situation.”¬†LeGrand¬†also asked that fans would honor their privacy and stated, “We will likely post an update as we learn more, but honestly, our information is the same as everyone else’s right now. Thank God that this situation did not end any worse than it already is. Please pray for all those involved.”
Founding member and lead guitarist¬†Keith Smith¬†added: ‚ÄúThis is very heartbreaking.¬†Oblivion Myth¬†has faced challenges before, but none quite like this.”
LeGrand¬†has also stated: “We will not be canceling any shows.¬†Keith¬†will be covering¬†Chris’ parts and we will go on as a four-piece for now.” Regarding¬†Selby’s status in the group, LeGrand¬†said: “This is not the time. Right now we are focused on what might happen with our brother and on keeping our commitments. Oblivion Myth¬†will not stop, but for now, deciding¬†Chris’ role in the band is the last thing on our minds.”
