'The Calling' Singer

911 Call

'He's Bleeding All Over the Place'

8/19/2013 10:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained the 911 call made by "The Calling" singer Alex Band's manager after the singer was found bloodied and beaten on the side of the road in Lapeer, MI early Sunday morning.

During the call, Band's manager is calm but reports that Alex was abducted and kidnapped by unknown assailants.

When asked how he knew Band was abducted, the manager replied, "Because he's bleeding all over the place and I found him on the side of the road." The manager told the operator Band was breathing and conscious.

TMZ broke the story ... police are currently investigating the incident. Band was in town for a music festival. We're told the singer decided to walk from his hotel to a nearby mini mart around 4am Sunday morning when a van pulled up and snatched him off the street.

This is how it should have been written:
We're told the singer decided to walk down from his hotel to a nearby drug dealer around 4am Sunday morning when the van of drug dealers pulled up and snatched him off the street, beat his ass, took his money, tossed him on the side of the road, and drove away laughing.

Sounds like the manager might have something to do with this. How would he know that he was abducted and kidnapped if he wasn't even at the incident. Something smells fishy in MI....!

Did his band mates check his pockets for the drugs he was supposed to score before calling the police?

Moral of story: buying drugs at 4am on a back road in Lapeer, MI ALONE can get you killed.
Second moral of the story: buying drugs from STRANGERS can get you killed.
Third moral of story: trying to BARGAIN while buying drugs ALONE from STRANGERS at 4 am on a back road in Lapeer, MI can get you killed.
Final moral of story: being STUPID can get you killed.

I live in Lapeer and this is by no means a representation of the city. Lapeer is a small town, while yes we are not exempt from crime this is not something that happens on the daily here. I am sure that there is more to this story then what the general public will ever know. I was at the festival that they played at. The Calling was supposed to go on around 10p.m. and they didn't even take the stage until after 11 from what I have been told.

True Story.
He was out at 4am bleeding all over the place looking for a tampon. He passed out on the tracks from exhaustion trying to find a tampon to fit his massive sna*ch. All is well the people at tampax came up with giant plugs for pu**sys like him
