According to The BG News, vocalist Austin Carlile of Southern California rockers OF MICE & MEN was arrested Saturday morning (March 30) in Bowling Green, Ohio on a felonious assault charge after police responded to a fight between two groups of people in the street and one person lying on the ground unconscious. Also arrested was the band's drum technician, Lionel Robinson II.
The victim was transported to Wood County Hospital with fractured nasal bones, Sgt. Jason Stanley of the Bowling Green Police Division said.
Carlile and Robinson were booked in the Wood County Justice Center and were released on Monday shortly after their video arraignment. Their bonds were set at $25,000 and posted by a bail bondsman, according to Bowling Green Municipal Court officials.
OF MICE & MEN was forced to cancel its shows in in Detroit and Grand Rapids, Michigan over the weekend, according to the band's Facebook. The group is scheduled to perform Monday at Peabody's in Cleveland with CHUNK! NO, CAPTAIN CHUNK!, FALLEN CAPTIVE and THIS IS A LIFETIME.
OF MICE & MEN's music video for the song "The Depths" can be seen below. The clip was shot in the U.K. by Sitcom Soldiers (HYRO DA HERO, BURY TOMORROW) during the band's headline tour.
"The Depths" appears on the 2012 expanded edition of OF MICE & MEN's breakthrough 2011 sophomore release "The Flood", which features four brand new tracks recorded with producer Cameron Webb (MOTÖRHEAD, SOCIAL DISTORTION) and mixed by Joey Sturgis.
