Journey’s former touring drummer Deen Castronovo was arrested earlier this month on allegations of assaulting his wife, but TMZ reports that those charges have now expanded. Marion County, Oregon’s District Attorney has now leveled charges of rape, sexual abuse, coercion, and unlawful use of a weapon. Though he was released earlier this month, he’s now reportedly being held without bail. For their current tour, Journey have replaced Castronovo with jazz drummer Omar Hakim.
