Castronovo spends night behind bars then posts $52k bail over string of charges after cops are called to domestic disturbance
Journey drummer Deen Castronovo spent a night behind bars at the weekend after being arrested on a string of charges related to a domestic disturbance.
He’s accused of coercion, fourth-degree assault, second-degree criminal mischief, interfering with making a report and harassment following an incident on Saturday night.
Cops were called to the Keizer, Oregon, home of Castronovo, 46, after an argument with his partner turned physical.
She ran out of their house to call her father, but the drummer is alleged to have followed her out, taken her phone from her and refused to let her make the call.
After spending a night in jail Castronovo posted bail and returned home.
A spokesman for the musician tells TMZ: “It was a misunderstanding that should not have been escalated to such a level in the frusta place.”
Castronovo joined Journey in 1998 and has played on five records including last year’s album Eclipse.
