Fall Out Boy Arrested
Apparently Stump had a two-year-old warrant out for his arrest for driving without a valid driver's license, which is a misdemeanor in California. Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore told AP that the 25-year-old was arrested late Tuesday during a traffic stop by Los Angeles police. He was booked on an outstanding warrant for driving without a license and released early Wednesday after posting $15,000 bail.
While AP tried to reach Stump's publicist on Wednesday and failed (wonder if it's the same person at Island that ignores our inquiries? If so, it's good to know we aren't the only ones experiencing the Universal black hole where questions go in but answers never back come out.) But fear not! Fall Out Boy are pretty much the current MTV house band. So if you want to get the inside story, that is the place to go since they apparently have the band members themselves on speed dial (that's an assumption on our part). MTV News spoke with Stump "approximately 90 minutes after he Posted bail," and here is what he had to say to them about his arrest, "All I really have to say is ignorance of the law isn't innocence. I didn't want to give up my Illinois driver's license and was unaware that was a crime. It is, by the way, in the state of California. Lesson learned. I technically broke a law, so technically I deserve whatever I get. But man, is my mom gonna be pissed." - Read the MTV report
