Maroon 5 bassist Mickey Madden steps away from band after arrest
Maroon 5 bassist Mickey Madden is stepping away from the band following his arrest for an alleged domestic violence incident.
“I have some things that I need to deal with and address right now and so I have decided to take a leave of absence from Maroon 5 for the foreseeable future,” he told People. “I do not want to be a distraction to my bandmates. I wish them the absolute best.”
Page Six broke the news that Madden was arrested. A rep for the band told us at the time, “We are deeply devastated by this disappointing news … We are looking at this very seriously.”
The LAPD confirmed the charge was California penal code 273.5(a), which means that someone willfully inflicted a “traumatic” injury on a spouse or cohabitant. Madden isn’t married, and the identity of the alleged victim is not clear.
