Journey’s Touring Drummer Deen Castronovo Arrested for Alleged Assault

arrives at the 2012 CMT Music awards at the Bridgestone Arena on June 6, 2012 in Nashville, Tennessee.

According to TMZ, Journey drummer Deen Castronovo was arrested yesterday on assault charges. On Tuesday morning, Castronovo — who’s been touring with the band on and off since 1998 — was arrested and booked for assault, coercion, and menacing, at what police believe was the 49-year-old’s home in Salem, OR.

This isn’t the drummer’s first brush with the law: In 2012, he was arrested (also in Oregon) for assault charges against his girlfriend. SPIN has reached out to Journey’s rep for comment.
