Listen to Anthrax on iHeartRadio

It turns out former Anthrax guitarist Dan Spitz's alleged Christmas morning assault was nothing but a "big misunderstanding."  That's what the rocker's wife Candi called it in an interview with She said Spitz never hit her, although she admits he did shove her and she did bruise her shoulder. 

Spitz was arrested after Candi's mother called 911, but Candi says the call should never have been made.  She says she won't be pressing charges against her husband, and attributes the confrontation to "astronomical" stress levels at home.  She adds that they had all been drinking wine, and that Christmas Eve was the first anniversary of the couple's temporary week-long separation.
