Maroon 5 bassist arrested on domestic violence charges

Maroon 5 bassist Mickey Madden has been arrested on allegations of domestic violence.

The musician was booked on Saturday afternoon in Los Angeles under penal code 273.5(a) which is described as ‘willfully inflicting a traumatic injury on a spouse or cohabitant’ LAPD confirmed to Page Six.

Madden, 41, isn’t married and the identity of the alleged victim has not been given.

Madden was released from custody after posting $50,000 bail, the website reports. If convicted he faces up to six years in prison and a $6,000 fine.

A spokesperson for Maroon 5 said: ‘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.’

It’s not the first time Madden has had a scrape with the law. He was arrested on cocaine charges in 2016.
