Maroon 5 bassist Mickey Madden was arrested on Saturday in Los Angeles on a domestic violence charge.
Billboard confirmed the news with the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), but law enforcement did not identify the victim.
The charge against Madden alleges willful infliction of a “traumatic” injury on a spouse or cohabitant.
The charge against the 41-year-old musician is a felony, and if he’s convicted, Madden could face a sentence of two to four years in prison.
He could also face up to one year in a county jail, a fine of up to $6,000 or both a fine and imprisonment, according to Billboard.
Madden, who is not married, posted a $50,000 bond on June 27 and was released. His court date is scheduled for Sept. 29.
“We are deeply devastated by this disappointing news. As we learn more, we are looking at this very seriously,” a spokesperson for Maroon 5 said.
