journeymusic 060710

Journey drummer Dean Castronovo is facing charges of rape, sexual abuse and assault, stemming from a June arrest which was initially described as a domestic dispute.

The Oregonian reports that Deen was initially booked for "three counts of fourth-degree assault, menacing, second-degree criminal mischief, unlawful use of a weapon and coercion." After he made bail, charges of "first-degree rape, second-degree sexual abuse and fourth-degree assault" were added.

The indictment states that Castronovo had sexual intercourse with the victim "by forcible compulsion."

Castronovo was subsequently arrested and is now being held without bail in Marion County, Oregon, according to TMZ.

Journey have replaced Castronovo with Omar Hakim, who'll be filling in during the band's summer tour.
