A Fall Out Boy Falls From Grace? Patrick Stump Arrested
Patrick Stump, the band's composer, vocalist, and guitarist was stopped in West Hollywood last night while he was driving, and it was determined the 25-year-old "had a previous warrant out for his arrest in Beverly Hills [...] for being an unlicensed driver."
Because the warrant was from Beverly Hills, the LA County Sheriff's Department was brought in to take custody of Stump; the reason Stump was initially pulled over has not been released.
The singer/musician was held at the West Hollywood Sheriff's Station, then released at around 4:30 this morning.
