According to an update on Facebook, Mikey Sawyer, who was recently arrested for domestic violence, is a free man. The charges against him were dropped by the state of Oklahoma, and he’s back in Miss Fortune, the band that Sumerian Records dropped.
From Sawyer’s Facebook:
I just want to start by saying that, on November 4th, I was exonerated of Domestic Assault & Battery charges.
The reason for that is simple: I’m innocent, and I always have been.
For the past week, I haven’t addressed the fans, Sumerian Records, or the media because I had not done what I have been accused of, and I knew that.
Instead, I endured the most brutal public humiliation that I’ve ever experienced in my 22 years on this Earth, but I hope to end that here.
On Friday, October 24th, I was arrested after getting into a fight with a 40-year-old man who was abusing my grandmother and I.
When police respond to a domestic dispute, it is mandatory that they make an arrest when there are injuries.
He goes on to say that he’s still in the band, and they’re working on a new album, “which will be self-titled. Appropriate, isn’t it?”
