Village Native Frankie Muniz Suffers Mini Stroke

Former TV star still set to take the stage at Mexicali Live in Teaneck Sunday.

Former “Malcolm in the Middle” star turned musician Frankie Muniz suffered a “mini stroke” but will still perform at Mexicali Live in Teaneck on Sunday, according to published reports and a Twitter message from the entertainer.

“I was in the hospital last Friday. I suffered a "Mini Stroke", which was not fun at all. Have to start taking care of my body! Getting old!,” said a post on the 27-year-old’s Twitter account Tuesday.

“I was really dizzy and in a lot of pain in my whole body and my head. My hands were numb. I didn't really have good balance and I was almost dropping the bike. I never had this before. I was like 'What's going on?,” Muniz told PEOPLE magazine.

Muniz plays drums in the band Kingsfoil, according to a report on NJ.com. He spent his early years in Ridgewood.

“Next Sunday night my band is playing a show close to where I grew up in Teaneck, NJ at Mexicali Live! Hope to see my old friends and family!,” he wrote in an earlier tweet.

He spent his early years in Ridgewood? Grew up in Teaneck? How early? Birth at Valley?
