Journey drummer pleads not guilty to four charges

Journey drummer Deen Castronovo pleaded not guilty Tuesday to four charges stemming from his January 20 arrest in West Salem, Oregon.

The Statesman Journal reports Castronovo, 47, is charged with recklessly endangering another person, interfering with making a police report, second-degree criminal mischief and harassment.

All of the charges are misdemeanors.

Castronovo was arrested late January 20 after a neighbor called 911 to report an altercation involving a man and woman across the street.

The woman told police that she and Castronovo had been in a relationship for three years but broke up about four weeks prior to the altercation, according to a probable-cause statement. A probable-cause statement is a document that provides legal ground for an arrest and to hold a person in jail.

The argument apparently started after Castronovo accused the woman of cheating on him, according to the statement.
