X-Man bagged at the scene of killing.
A member of a contraversial Australian rock band has been charged with a drink driving offence at the scene of a murder. 
Uncanny X_men bassist John Patrick Kirk was breathalysed  outside the Seaview Hotel in Fitzroy Street, St Kilda.
Police intercepted the musician as he drove towards the murder scene shortly after midnight on Friday morning.
Kirk, 28, was asked to take a breathalyser test and the reading was allegedly in excess of .05 percent.
Police bailed Kirk, of Gellibrand St Reservoir, to appear in Prahan Court on July 30. Kirk has been a member of the contraversial band since it began in 1981.
Uncanny X-Men first hit the charts with Everybody Wants to Work in 1984 and its Beach Party EP. The band later scored with its album Cos Life Hurts but left Mushroom for CBS Records earlier this year and had a national hit with the single "I Am".
