Hilltops’ Pressure hospitalised after glassing

Hilltops’ Pressure hospitalised after glassing

MC Pressure (real name Daniel Smith) of the Hilltop Hoods was hospitalised on Friday night after being glassed in the head at a party in the southern Adelaide suburb of Aberfoyle Park.

The band has made no comment on the incident but police confirmed they had been called to a party at 11 pm on Thursday night to a private gathering on Istanbul Drive.

They said a man had been hit on the head with a drinking glass.

40-year-old Pressure was taken to the Flinders Medical Centre for treatment for non-life threatening injuries before being released. 

A 42-year-old Aberfoyle Park man was arrested and charged with aggravated assault.

He was bailed to appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court in July.

A neighbour, Chrystine Caple, told 9News that the altercation spilled onto the street.

“It was very loud, we could hear arguing and fighting on the street,” she said.

“There were comments of: ‘You’ve made me bleed, there’s a lot of blood.’

“We were all quite scared and we called the police and, yeah, it was pretty scary.”

The Hilltop Hoods play Splendour in the Grass next month before heading off to Europe for shows through August.
