Jonny Craig has had a hard time staying out of trouble, and his streak of doing so came to an end last night as he was apparently arrested last night after a Slaves show in Scottsdale, AZ. According to Tweets from  concertgoers, the singer didn’t take kindly to Pub Rock Live shutting down the band’s set early and damaged some equipment. There’s footage of Craig being led away in handcuffs, as well as another of the club ejecting patrons and the bands. Lambgoat confirms that the singer was arrested on charges of criminal damage and disorderly conduct and is being held in custody awaiting arraignment. 

The club responded via Twitter “We didn’t cut a single set. The tour did. Also, Police cut the encore. We just made sure everyone was safely leaving the venue.” 

So far, neither the band or Craig have any official comment, but we’ll update this when we hear anything. This was the last date of the band’s tour in support of their new album, Beautiful Death. Craig has struggled with drug addiction over the course of his career, which also includes stints in Dance Gavin Dance and Emarosa. Slaves was also dropped from Artery Records last year after Craig was accused of sexual misconduct.
