Alabama Shakes drummer Steven Johnson arrested on child abuse charges

Steven Johnson, the drummer for Grammy award-winning US rock band Alabama Shakes, has been arrested on child abuse charges.

Johnson was taken into custody at Alabama’s Limestone County Jail on Wednesday, news outlets report.

A grand jury indicted him on charges of wilful torture, abuse and cruelly beating or otherwise wilfully maltreating a child.

Bond is set at $21,500 (£15,580) with an arraignment date set for 7 April.

Johnson, 35, previously pleaded guilty in March last year to violating a domestic violence protection order in Limestone County.

He received a suspended sentence of a year in jail, with 24 months on probation.

Alabama Shakes have been on hiatus since 2018.

The roots-rock revivalists won a host of Grammys for their 2012 debut album, Boys & Girls, and its 2015 follow-up, Sound & Colour, before lead singer Brittany Howard launched a solo career.

BBC News has contacted the band’s representatives for comment.
