The drummer for alternative rockers OneRepublic was arrested after losing it in downtown Denver early yesterday morning. Eddie Fisher, 38, was busted on suspicion of assault, destruction of private property, and disturbing the peace, AP reports. "Things just got out of hand, and he snapped," the alleged victim, girlfriend Lona Rae, told a local TV station. "My entire cabinets are ripped off my walls. I had my feet up against the wall trying not to let him in, and he busted through the door and he pushed me through the cabinets." Fisher will appear today in court, where he might do well to remember the band's Grammy-nominated breakout hit, "Apologize," notes TMZ. (More OneRepublic stories.)
