A month after being arrested for a late night brawl in Ohio, Of Mice And Men frontman Austin Carlile was in court this morning to learn what would come of the felonious assault charges facing him.
Carlile appeared at the Bowling Green Municipal Courthouse this morning at 9:30 AM to begin proceedings. We were unable to have a reporter on site, but a phone call with the courthouse has informed us the hearing was relatively short. Carlile’s original charge of felonious assault was lowered by the judge to a misdemeanor offense, and moments later Carlile was found guilty.
As a result of the ruling, Carlile was asked to pay a $1000 fine and all court expenses. $800 of that charge suspended, however, so Carlile left the court room owing $335, which we were told was paid in full before he left.
Carlile has yet to directly comment on the situation. That said, shortly after the proceedings let out, Carlile did tweet the Bill Keane quote, “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.”
Of Mice And Men are currently on tour with A Day To Remember and have about a week left before the run comes to a close. Click here for details.
