According to StatesmanJournal.com, JOURNEY drummer Deen Castronovop leaded not guilty Tuesday to four charges stemming from an arrest last month in Salem, Oregon.
The 47-year-old musician was charged with recklessly endangering another person, interfering with making a police report, second-degree criminal mischief and harassment.
Castronovo was arrested on January 21 for allegedly assaulting his former girlfriend. TMZ.com reported that Castronovo “also received additional charges when he took the phone away from the woman while she was trying to call her father.”
The woman told police that she and Castronovo had been involved in a three-year relationship, but split up about four weeks prior to the altercation.
A representative of Castronovo‘s claims the altercation was “a misunderstanding that should not have been escalated to such a level in the first place.”
