An earlier version of this story mischaracterized a statement by Michelle Branch as announcing her divorce from Patrick Carney, and described Carney as Branch's ex-husband. The statement announced Branch and Carney's separation. The story has been corrected.
The arrest came shortly after Branch announced her separation from Carney, her husband of three years and drummer for the Black Keys. Branch and Carney have two children, Rhys James and Willie Jacquet. On Thursday, Branch tweeted, then deleted, a post accusing Carney of infidelity.
Branch’s bond was set at $1,000, according to court records.
Branch is well known for her early 2000s albums “The Spirit Room” and “Hotel Paper.” She won a Grammy for best pop collaboration with vocals in 2003 for rock band Santana’s song “The Game of Love.” She was also nominated for three other Grammys for best new artist in that same year, the rock song “Are You Happy Now?” in 2004 and “Leave the Pieces” with country artist Jessica Harp in 2007.
Representatives for Branch could not immediately be reached for comment.
