Deen Castronovo, drummer with power balladeers Journey, was arrested over the weekend over accusations that he had assaulted his girlfriend.
The drummer, who joined Journey in 1998, was arrested on Saturday (January 21) on a list of charges which included coercion, assault, criminal mischief, interfering with making a report and harassment.
Castronovo has been released after paying a bail deposit of over $52,000 (£33,200) and will find out in the coming weeks if he will be charged.
According to US gossip website TMZ, a spokesperson for the drummer has described the situation as a “misunderstanding”. They said: “It was a misunderstanding that should not have been escalated to such a level in the first place.”
Journey released their latest album ‘Eclipse’ in May last year. The album was the 15th studio effort from the ‘Don’t Stop Believin’ five-piece and was supported by a seven-date UK and Ireland tour.
