Shins star released from jail after allegedly assaulting girlfriend
The Shins keyboardist, Marty Crandall, has been released from jail following a violent incident involving his girlfriend on Friday (January 4).

Crandall and his girlfriend, model Elyse Sewell, were taken into custody over the weekend following a scuffle in a Sacramento hotel room, as previously reported.

An earlier post on Sewell's website chronicled the incident, but it has been since removed. She posted this explanation today (January 7):

"Hi guys! I'm feeling much better on this new day (after sleeping until noon). I've decided to heed the advice of many commenters (lawyerly types) and friends-lock my last entry about the legal foibles between me and my ex-boyfriend."

Meanwhile, The Shins' record label, Sub Pop, issued the following statement:

"Marty Crandall and his ex-girlfriend Elyse Sewell were both arrested over the weekend following an argument at a Sacramento hotel which resulted in hotel staff calling the police.

"They were both taken into police custody and released over the weekend. There will be no further comment at this time and we would appreciate their privacy being respected."

Crandall is due to appear in court tomorrow (January 8).
