Maroon 5’s Mickey Madden Arrested Following Domestic Violence Allegation, Announces ‘Leave Of Absence’ From Band

Maroon 5 bassist Mickey Madden was arrested on a felony charge earlier this month after being accused of domestic violence.

ET confirmed the 41-year-old musician was placed under arrest and charged under California penal code 273.5(a), charged with willfully inflicting a “traumatic” injury on a spouse or cohabitant.

According to Page Six, Madden is unmarried, and the identity of his alleged victim hasn’t been identified. He is currently free after posting $50,000 bail.

A spokesperson for Maroon 5 responded to the arrest. “We are deeply devastated by this disappointing news,” said the band’s rep in a statement. “As we learn more, we are looking at this very seriously.”

“For now, we are allowing all of the individuals involved the space to work things through,” the statement concluded.

Following his arrest, Madden has announced he will be stepping away from the band indefinitely.

“I have some things that I need to deal with and address right now and so I have decided to take a leave of absence from Maroon 5 for the foreseeable future,” Madden tells People in a statement. “During this time, I do not want to be a distraction to my bandmates. I wish them the absolute best.”

Page Six also reminds that this isn’t Madden’s first brush with the law; back in 2015, Madden was arrested for possession of cocaine after an undercover officer witnessed him passing a vial of the drug to Ivanka Trump’s ex-boyfriend, James “Bingo” Gubelmann.

Madden’s next court date is Sept. 29 at 8:30 a.m. PT at L.A. Superior Court, ET can confirm.
