Slaves Frontman Jonny Craig Released Following Scottsdale, AZ Arrest, Band Comments

As previously reported, Slaves’ Jonny Craig was arrested for criminal damage and disorderly conduct during the band’s March 12 show at Pub Rock Live in Scottsdale, AZ. However, those charges have now been dropped, and Craig has been released.

The band commented:

“To confirm the rumors, Jonny Craig was arrested last night in Scottsdale, AZ.

As Slaves were performing on stage, an altercation was transpiring backstage between members of the band Ghost Town causing the venue to call the authorities. While police arrived, the bands set was hastily shut down 30 minutes early by cutting off all microphones on stage.

Unaware of what was happening (along with the fans), Jonny “dropped the mic” and damaged a few microphones (approximately $60 dollars worth of damages, which were paid for by the band). In response, the police handcuffed and arrested Jonny for criminal damage. This was obviously an excessive use of force (realized later), resulting in all charges to be dropped and Jonny to be immediately released.

We want to thank all fans, old & new for their support on the release of our new album & coming out to this tour.

We’ll see you again soon,

SLAVES”
