Catalepsy members arrested in North Carolina

Details are sketchy, but it appears that at least two members of Orlando, Florida band Catalepsy were arrested and jailed on Wednesday night near Hooligans's Pub & Music Hall in Jacksonville, NC. The arrests were apparently drug-related and the group's van was subsequently possessed by authorities. Catalepsy had just kicked off a week-long mini tour of the Southeast, which has subsequently been scrapped.

"After our show at Hooligans, we went to a fans house for a place to stay. Word of mouth spread that we were staying there and about 15 more kids showed up. Noise escalated and the cops were called due to a noise complaint. Three members were outside chilling, I was inside. Blunts were being rolled by the kids but none of the weed belonged to Catalepsy. Cops smelled the weed and barged in the house. All the locals were cited and released but since Catalepsy was from another state, the Jacksonville PD arrested Sean, Mike and I [Rob] for possession even though we had no weed. 1500 dollars and 11 grueling hours in the county jail later, we were released. We played one more show to get the gas money to drive back down to Florida since we all have court. Fuck the police."
