Alabama Shakes drummer Steven William Johnson has been arrested on multiple child abuse charges, Huntsville, AL's WHNT reports. On Wednesday (3/24), a Limestone County, AL Grand Jury indicted him on charges of "willful torture, willful abuse, and cruelly beating or otherwise willfully maltreating a child under the age of 18." He was brought to Limestone County Jail, where his bond is set at $21,500, and his arraignment is scheduled for April 7.
In 2019, Johnson was arrested for violating a protection from abuse order, issued after his ex-wife accused him of breaking into her home, choking, injuring, and stalking her. He pled guilty to violating the protection order in March of 2020, WHNT reports.
