MUSIC NEWS - Rock guitarist Ron Wood (the Faces, Rolling Stones), 62, was arrested in London on Wednesday night on suspicion of assault charges in connection with a domestic violence incident. He wasted no time in getting out of the slammer, and posted bail Thursday AM, according to Surrey, England police who have not yet released any details on the incident, which remain under investigation.
“I can confirm that there was an incident last night and that Ronnie Wood was arrested,” said Wood’s spokesman, David Rigg. “He has since been released on police bail."
Wood has been battling alcoholism for some time, and has had many rehab stints. Wood made the celebrity tabloid news back in July 2008 when he started dating Ekaterina Ivanoca, a young Russian model. His involvement with the young Ivanoca led to the end of his 24-year-old marriage, which divorce was finalized last month.
