Heart singer Ann Wilson’s husband, 65-year-old Dean Stuart Wetter, was arrested after allegedly assaulting two of Wilson’s teenage nephews, according to the Seattle Times. The incident occurred Friday in Seattle during one of Wilson’s concerts.

According to probable-cause documents obtained by the news outlet, the incident started when the 16-year-old twins wanted to look around Wilson’s new tour bus. After obtaining permission from Wetter, the boys looked around but forgot to close the bus door when they left. 

Wetter allegedly slapped and punched the teenagers and supposedly even grabbed one by the throat. Documents obtained by Seattle Times say that the 65-year-old’s alleged attack caused one of the boys to complain “a sore, raspy throat, fear of dying and pain in his throat area.”

People reports the the twins are Wilson’s nephews and the sons of her sister, Nancy Wilson, and her ex, director Cameron Crowe. Ann Wilson’s rep told People, “Since this is a family matter, it is asked that you respect their privacy.”

Wetter was booked on assault charges at King County Jail in Kent, Washington, early Saturday morning. He was released after posting a $10,000 bond Monday night and is due back in court Wednesday. 

The Huffington Post has reached out to Wilson’s reps for comment and will update this post accordingly.
