According to his attorney, Journey drummer Deen Castronovo was high on an overdose of methamphetamine at the time of his June 14 arrest on charges that he assaulted a woman. He ended up in the hospital.

During last week’s bail hearing, the Deputy District Attorney said that Castronovo threw the woman into a wall 14 times, pulled her hair and forced her to have sex with him.

After being released on bail on June 15, Castronovo called the victim 35 times and sent her 122 text messages, despite being under a court order to have no contact with her.

As the details were being read, Castronovo “talked to himself and sometimes looked toward the ceiling. He appeared weary and took deep breaths and seemed to shake. At one point Castronovo wobbled and nearly fell over. Three deputies helped him to sit in a chair as he closed his eyes.”

His attorney brought Deen’s ex-wives into court who testified that he had never assaulted them in any way.

When he was asked how big the tumor was, Dickinson said: “I had two, actually. One was three and a half centimeters — the size of a golf ball. And the other one was two and a half centimeters, and getting a bit bigger.And that was the only symptom — I had a lump in my neck, and that was the second one. So I went to the doc, and they went, ‘Oh, that’s a bit weird.’ [They] took a scan of it, had a look, had a poke around, and went, ‘You have head and neck cancer.’ So I went, ‘That’s a bit of a blow’ But you get on with it. You crack on and you get on with it. So… that was it.”
