(Radio.com) Jonathan Cook, frontman for pop-punk band Forever The Sickest Kids, was apparently arrested in January for selling counterfeit Rolex watches, he admitted.
A collector of antique automobiles and wrist watches, the Dallas-based, 29-year-old singer released a statement Monday (April 22). It reads:
"I am writing this letter to apologize to my friends and fans for my recent arrest and charges against me for trademark counterfeiting, with attempted distribution of counterfeit Rolex watches.
"Before being arrested, I was not aware of how serious such a transaction was and through my experience I have learned that it does not matter how or where I purchased the watches. Simply presenting an item for sale with a false trademark logo is a criminal offense, even if it is well known that the item is a fake." more.
