Ian Brown Arrested for Suspicion of Assault on Spouse
Published Nov 03, 2009Ian Brown, the always charismatic and often cocky former lead singer of the Stone Roses, was arrested yesterday (November 2) morning on suspicion of assaulting his wife at the couple's London, England home.
"On arrival, a 37-year-old woman made an allegation of domestic assault," a Scotland Yard spokeswoman told the BBC.
Brown, 46, was brought to a west London police station after reports of a disturbance. He was issued bail to return in December, pending further investigation into the incident against his wife, Mexican-born actress, model, photographer and musician Fabiola Quiroz.
According to NME, Quiroz allegedly told police who arrived on the scene that Brown had attacked her.
The couple were married in the late '90s and have one child together, a son named Emilio. Brown and Quiroz have worked on many photo shoots and promotional videos together.
The Stone Roses disbanded in 1994 after their sophomore album, Second Coming, and rumours of the group reforming have circulated ever since. Brown also announced in September that he was planning to write and record an album with former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr.
Brown's plans might just be put on hold, depending on what goes down in December.
