BOISE, Idaho – Zakk Wylde’s Black Label Society show was canceled Thursday after things got, well, wild.

Police on Thursday afternoon were called to The Big Easy, the club where Black Label Society was to perform that night, reported the Idaho Statesman. A police spokeswoman says considerable damage had been done to the interior of the club and witnesses said it was done by Wylde using a baseball bat.

Police detained Wylde and another man, Charles Hurd, for about half an hour. Police say the case was dropped because no one wanted to press charges. Big Easy co-owner Paul Thornton says the show was called off “due to illness.” Wylde’s representatives were unavailable for comment.

Wylde was Ozzy Osbourne’s longtime guitarist.
