Journey Drummer Busted for Roughing Up Girlfriend

“Lovin’, Touchin’, Squeezin'” this wasn’t.

Journey touring drummer Deen Castronovo was  arrested over the weekend in Oregon on charges he got physical with his  girlfriend.

Here’s what happened.

A Polk County Jail confirms to E! News that the 46-year-old percussionist was  booked there on Saturday after he was taken into custody by Salem police on  charges of coercion, assault, criminal mischief, interfering with  making  a  report and harassment.

According to TMZ, Castronovo’s legal troubles began after the couple got into a heated argument and the rocker turned violent. Then when the unidentified  gal-pal tried to leave the house to call her father, the drummer prevented her  from calling by yanking the phone from her hand.

He was later released from the pokey after posting $52,500 bail.

A publicist for Castronovo could not be reached for comment but previously  told the website that the Journey man felt the whole thing “was a  misunderstanding that should not have been escalated to such a level in the  first place.”

Castronovo has been playing with Journey since the release of their 2001  album Arrival after first hooking up with members of the band as part  of the late ’80s supergroup Bad English. Journey released their latest  LP, Eclipse, last year.
