Frontman Zeid Hamdan of the Lebanese band Zeid and the Wings and defunct Soapkills was arrested Wednesday on charges that he defamed the Lebanese president in the song “General Suleiman.”

The arrest came after Interior Minister Marwan Charbel saw a video for the song, which was made in 2010, and claimed it was offensive to the country’s president, Lebanese newspaper The Daily Star reported.
