Harley's Army Defense Fund screengrab A screengrab of the fundraiser.

If you can’t donate $5,000 for a brand-new 3-D portrait, then can you spare a dollar for a hardcore legend behind bars?

After allegedly biting and slashing members of the Cro-Mags at Webster Hall last weekend, Harley Flanagan, a founding member of the band, needs help.

Friends of Mr. Flanagan’s are soliciting money for a legal defense fund on IndieGoGo, and hope to raise $50,000 in the name of “Harley’s Army.” So far supporters have donated $579.

“All of the details aren’t out, though certain stories are being bandied about in the court of public opinion,” the post reads. (The Local corrected typos). “All of the details aren’t going to get out, or get presented properly in a court of law if Harley doesn’t get top notch legal representation.”

The man behind the fundraiser goes on to write that Mr. Flanagan would not have acted without a legitimate reason.

“C’mon people, everybody knows Harley, he doesn’t react short of reason,” he wrote. “So he didn’t just show up and do things because it was a dull Friday and he was bored.”

Mr. Flanagan will appear in court tomorrow.
