Dance Gavin Dance Singer Jonny Craig Arrested for Drug Possession
After a long and turbulent history with his band Dance Gavin Dance, lead singer Jonny Craig has again departed his constantly shapeshifting musical outfit. The frontman has been arrested after having been found to be in possession of narcotics and drug paraphernalia, as reported by Metalinsider.com.
According to the Solano County Police's booking log, Craig is being held for $15,000. Craig has taken several other leaves of absence from Dance Gavin Dance many of them stemming from drug and alcohol related issues. His arrest has led to the cancellation of the band's tour.
Several months ago Craig admitted to swindling people out of thousands of dollars with fake laptop sales in addition to having just completed some time in rehab. Now Dance Gavin Dance will be going on indefinite hiatus so he can continue to get his life back on track.
Guitarist and co-vocalist Will Swan reportedly posted "Dance Gavin Dance is on hiatus until Jonny can get his life together. Tour is not the environment for that. That is all" after the band announced the news that the tour would be cancelled.
