Maroon 5 bassist Mickey Madden is taking a “leave of absence” from Maroon 5 following his arrest last month on a charge of intimate partner violence.

Madden said in a statement to People:  “I have some things that I need to deal with and address right now and so I have decided to take a leave of absence from Maroon 5 for the foreseeable future. During this time, I do not want to be a distraction to my bandmates. I wish them the absolute best.”

Madden was arrested on June 28 on the felony charge under California’s 273.5(a) penal code, which cites anyone who inflicts an injury that leaves a spouse or cohabitant “in a traumatic condition,” and was released on the same day after posting bail
