Black Flag founder’s brother busted for violating order of protection

The younger brother of the founder of the punk band Black Flag was busted Wednesday — for a second time — for violating an order of protection against his wife, cops said.

Raymond Ginn was leaving a fourth-floor courtroom in Manhattan Criminal Court when he was cuffed by police in a vestibule between the courtroom and hallway.

Ginn — whose brother Greg established the seminal band in 1976 — was in court for a hearing on his initial arrest on Jan. 29 for allegedly emailing his ex-wife Aida Ruilova nine times in a month, in violation of an order of protection she had against him.

The emails contained comments about Ruilova’s “sexuality” as well as “derogatory and vulgar statements,” according to the criminal complaint.

He was charged with criminal contempt, a misdemeanor.

The haggard-looking 60-year-old was re-arrested Wednesday for allegedly emailing Ruilova again, cops said.

He said nothing when a reporter asked for comment and was hauled off to the 1st Precinct in Lower Manhattan.

Ruilova and Ginn, who have a child together, are in the middle of a divorce.

Ruilova called police to try to “maintain the integrity of the system and out of the respect for the child that is involved,” said her attorney, Patrick Brackley.

“She hopes he will follow the law and deal with the situation responsibly,” Brackley added.

Ginn’s lawyer didn’t immediately return a message. Ginn played bass for the band when it was called Panic, and created posters and cover art — including the Black Flag logo — for his brother’s company, SST records.
