Howie Day arrested

Singer and songwriter Howie Day was arrested on December 21 in Boston's Logan Airport.

The Maine native was charged with interfering with a flight crew and has pleaded innocent.

According to Yahoo News "the flight crew told police that Day was verbally abusive, lit matches and kicked the backs of other passengers' seats."

On the other hand Day's lawyer told reporters "He had a couple of drinks. The pill interacted with the drinks and he became intoxicated. He feels badly if he inconvenienced anyone, or caused any discomfort." The attorney added, "He has and will apologize, and our hope is that we'll be able to resolve this thing as promptly as possible."

This isn't the first time Day's had a run in with the law, in 2004 he was arrested in Madison, Wisconsin for locking a woman in a bathroom of a tour bus apparently because she had refused his sexual advances.

The twenty four year old released his most recent album Stop All the World Now in October of 2003 and had a hit with his single, "Collide".

He is due in court on March 16.
