The specific felony charge against Madden is California Penal Code 273.5 (a), which applies to “anyone who intentionally inflicts bodily injury” on a spouse or partner “Resulting in a traumatic condition.”
After being detained for several hours, Madden was released after posting $ 50,000 bail.. The 41-year-old musician will have to face the trial on September 29, according to Consequence of Sound. The identity of the alleged victim has not been revealed.
“We are deeply devastated by this disappointing news. As we learn more, we take this very seriously. For now, we are allowing everyone involved to have room to work, “a Maroon 5 spokesperson said in a statement.
In 2016 Mickey Madden was already arrested for cocaine possession in New York. Then, the police accused him of drug dealing outside a city pub with Ivanka Trump’s ex-boyfriend James ‘Bingo’ Gubelmann.
