Mickey Madden, bassist of the world-renowned band Maroon 5 was taken into custody on Saturday in Los Angeles over allegations of domestic abuse.
As reported by Page Six, the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed that the musician was arrested under California penal code 273.5(a) for purposely inflicting “traumatic” injury on a partner or cohabitant.
Madden, 41, posted bail at $50,000, while the identity of the alleged victim has yet to be clarified.
Maroon 5’s spokesperson told Page Six, “We are deeply devastated by this disappointing news. As we learn more, we are looking at this very seriously.
“For now, we are allowing all of the individuals involved the space to work things through.”
Madden was earlier also sent behind bars in 2016 on cocaine charges. He accepted a conditional dismissal offer in exchange for a day of community service.
