Grammy-winning group drummer Alabama Shakes was arrested last week in Alabama for child abuse.
Steven William Johnson, 35, has been charged with willful torture, willful abuse and cruel beatings or intentional mistreatment of a child under the age of 18, according to reports.
Johnson previously pleaded guilty in March 2020 to violating a domestic violence protection order in Limestone County, Ala. He had been sentenced to one year suspended prison sentence with 24 months probation.
Alabama Shakes has been on hiatus since 2018, so singer Brittany Howard could pursue a solo career.
He was booked into Limestone County Jail on bail set at $ 21,500. The date of his indictment is set for April 7.
