Deen Castronovo, drummer for AOR favorites Journey, was arrested this weekend in Oregon for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend. The stickman has been with the band since 1998.

After their argument turned physical, Castronovo allegedly chased his girlfriend out of their house when she tried to call her father and grabbed the phone from her hand. He was presented with a bevy of charges including fourth-degree assault, second-degree criminal mischief, coercion, interfering with making a report and harassment. He was later released after posting over $52,500 in bail.

A representative told TMZ that the incident "was a misunderstanding that should not have been escalated to such a level in the first place." Castronovo will find out whether he will be charged in the coming weeks.
