Nick Oliveri

Former Queens of the Stone Age bassist Nick Oliveri has been charged with four felonies after a tense standoff with a S.W.A.T. team in L.A. last month -- and now faces up to 15 years in prison.

As we previously reported, Oliveri was arrested on July 12th -- after a fight with his girlfriend escalated into a four-hour standoff with police. Oliveri was booked on felony domestic violence -- and after police searched his home, they found a fully-loaded rifle.

But that's not all they found -- according to the charging docs, police also found cocaine and methamphetamines.

Oliveri is charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance with a firearm, 2 counts of possession of a controlled substance, and one misdemeanor count of resisting, obstructing or delaying a peace officer.

If convicted on all counts, the 39-year-old faces a max of 15 years in prison. -[TMZ]

Scott Reeder (Goatsnake/The Obsessed/Kyuss) recently filled in for Nick Oliveri on bass at four Kyuss Lives shows in Europe. It remains to be seen who plays with them for the upcoming North American tour with The Sword. Tickets are still available for the September 23rd show at Terminal 5. Updated Kyuss Lives dates are below.

That's some accomplishment 9:53. Mommy and Daddy must be very proud of you - or do they just sign the checks, and have no other interest? Dumbass.

Boys, boys .... no reason to argue when there is just too much hummus here for just one person to try to consume on his own. I need help boys, so stop arguing and grab a bag of pita chips and dig in.

Only Braun would be so stupid as to advertise on a website the demographic of which has precisely zero use for its product. What's next? A special message from Hickory Farms?

He should be charged for liking Trash Talk.
