Nick Oliveri, former bassist for Queens Of The Stone Age, is facing fifteen years in jail.

Thirty nine year-old Oliveri, who was involved in a five-hour standoff with SWAT officers last month, has been held in custody ever since, with bail set at $100,000. He goes to Court next month.

When officers gained entry to the property, a full search turned up a cache of firearms, including a fully loaded Ruger .223 caliber rifle, plus cocaine and methamphetamine.

Oliveri is being charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance with a firearm, two counts of possession of a controlled substance and one count of resisting arrest.

Officers were originally called to his Hollywood home because of alleged domestic violence, when Oliveri refused to let his ex-girlfriend leave the property.

Queens Of The Stone Age singer Josh Homme admitted that the reason for Oliveri's sacking from the band in 2004 was due to domestic violence.
