Fisher broke into girlfriend Lonnie Weygant’s home and took out what appeared to be a considerable amount of anger on Weygant’s property. Weygant said that Fisher forced his way into her home in a rage and destroyed the cabinets. Police arrested Fisher Tuesday morning, and he had a court appearance one day later. He pled not guilty to all of the charges against him.
Depending on the extent of the damage, destruction of property may be a misdemeanor or a felony charge in Colorado. Back in March, Russell Brand was charged with felony property damage in Louisiana, where damage costing more than $500 to repair is considered a felony. The law also differs in Texas, where an Austin criminal defense attorney would have to advise a party how to proceed if charged with property damage based on state law.
Fisher has been a member of OneRepublic since 2005. He has been credited for writing a number of the band’s songs on their 2007 album Dreaming Out Loud, and has drummed on tracks for a number of other artists.
