Travis McCoy Arrested On Assault

Gym Class Heroes frontman Travis McCoy has been arrested on assault. The band was in the middle of their Warped Tour show in St. Louis when an audience member made a racist comment to McCoy. Security was already escorting the guy when McCoy started hitting the guy over the head with his microphone.

Kind of a no-no, but McCoy knew he reacted poorly, and issued this statement: "I'm sorry. But when someone calls you something that ignorant and that offensive, you have to bash their head in with a microphone."

He was released from jail this morning. As bad as it is to physically hurt someone, we can't help but see Travis' side on this one!
