Singer Michelle Branch Arrested

Singer-songwriter Michelle Branch was arrested Thursday morning and charged with domestic assault amid news that she was splitting from her husband, musician Patrick Carney.

Police were called to the couple’s home at 2:08 on Thursday morning, where Branch admitted to police that she and Carney were having marital problems.

Branch told police she slapped her husband in the face “one to two times,” which Carney confirmed in a separate interview with officers. Police noted that “he did not have visible injuries.”

The “Everywhere” singer was taken into custody without incident, with bond set at $1,000. She is set to appear in court on Nov. 7.

Branch accused her husband, the drummer for the Black Keys, of cheating in a since-deleted tweet on Thursday and later released an emotional statement announcing the pair’s split.

“To say that I am totally devastated doesn’t even come close to describing how I feel for myself and for my family,” Branch said in a statement provided to multiple outlets.

“The rug has been completely pulled from underneath me and now I must figure out how to move forward,” she added. “With such small children, I ask for privacy and kindness.”
