Date: August 14, 2012

Falling in Reverse singer Ronnie Radke the King of Controversy is scheduled to appear in court today after being arrested Monday, August 6 on an outstanding warrant for alleged domestic assault against his girlfriend Sally Watts.
Sgt. Tom Lorenz told reporters that The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office had issued the warrant after Radke’s girlfriend told Glendale police that he had physically assaulted her at their home on May 1. Due to the bands recent run on the summer Van’s Warped Tour Radke was not arrested until returning home to LA. Welcome home? Not. After spending a day back in jail, Radke was released on a $30,000 bail bond.
Radke is expected to appear in court today for a pretrial hearing. He is charged with a misdemeanor count of corporal injury to his girlfriend and misdemeanor false imprisonment, according to a Los Angeles County Superior Court criminal complaint.
After losing Ronnie to jail for 2-and-a-half years prior to this charge, the last thing I personally want to have happen is for him to be back behind bars. Especially after hearing from a secret source that the boys of Falling In Reverse are scheduled to be back in Seattle sometime this fall….
Radke was quick to comment on the incident and update his fans via Twitter shortly after his release saying, “Attention fans: don’t believe everything you read on the internet!!! Jesus!!! Hahahaha It’s funny how people are my fans after hearing about my prison sentence I served for fighting in the desert but read some random story online then completely flip the script on me and hate me. Until of course im playing a show in their town then they automatically love me again.” He added, “Curiosity was framed. Ignorance killed the cat.
