The lead singer of the punk band Amen was arrested for DUI in L.A. last night after he allegedly smashed his SUV into as many as 15 parked cars.

TMZ has learned ... 46-year-old Casey Chaos -- real name Karim Chmielinski -- was popped in Studio City, CA around 12:50 AM after cops say he ran a drunken demolition derby through a residential street.

Police say ... Chaos -- abandoned his car at the scene of the destruction ... but was quickly discovered at his nearby home, where he was arrested for DUI.

Sources tell us ... Casey's blood alcohol level was just above .08, the legal limit in California.

According to Wikipedia, Casey's band, Amen, was once voted "Best Band in the World" by the readers of Metal Hammer magazine.

A**HOLE LOSER! He should get in a lot of trouble for that and not just a slap on the wrist like all other celebs and musicians who do similar things.

He did all of this with just over a .08 BAC? He had to be on something else!

Thug, that's what's wrong with these rock singers. They're all wigged out on drugs and always want to drive and put the lives of others at risk. Typical thug behavior. Animal.
