Falling In Reverse Frontman Charged After Assaulting Girlfriend

Written by Mike Hohnen on August 9, 2012

Ronnie Radke, ex Escape the Fate frontman turn Falling in Reverse vocalist, has again found himself in serious legal problems after his girlfriend reported to police that the Las Vegas native assaulted her at the couple’s home this past May.

Radke was arrested and charged $30,000 bond, though not before being officially charged with a misdemeanor account of corporal injury to his girlfriend and misdemeanor false imprisonment, according to the Los Angeles County Superior Court complaint. The vocalist very recently spent 2 1/2 years behind bars for his involvement in the shooting death of an 18-year-old Las Vegas man. Though Radke didn’t pull the trigger, he all but held the guy down while it happened, and he was locked up after missing a session with his Parol officer.

Falling in Reverse was a project Radke began working on while doing time. The project was established to challenge his previous band Escape the Fate, who ejected the singer after his previous convictions made it too difficult for them to tour domestically and internationally, which leads to the next point: Soundwave.

Up until now the band had been in with a possibility, though if it was a struggle to get them here with his previous criminal record, it will be next to impossible to get him here now. Though I can’t say it’s a bad thing keeping a woman basher out of the country. An excerpt from Pick up the Phone, a track featured on Falling in Reverse’s debut album, demonstrates just how little respect he shows spousal abuse. Maybe he should have listened to his own warning.

‘Pick yourself up
Up off the floor
Wipe the tears from off your face
Because the cops are knocking on the door
They’re gonna wanna know what’s up!
Better tell them that you fell
‘Cause when they see the bruises on my face
They’re probably taking both of us to jail’

Soundwave boss AJ Maddah has confirmed that unless the girlfriend drops charges, he won’t be coming on Maddah’s tour.
