Miss Fortune Dropped From Sumerian Records Due To Frontman’s Arrest

When you are a fan of an artist or musician, you’d like to think they are impervious to human flaws. Unfortunately, they are not infallible. Apparently Miss Fortune‘s frontman, Mikey Sawyer, was arrested October 24 for domestic violence.

Before the situation with their frontman was known, they let fans know they would not be making it to The Word Alive‘s ‘Get Real’ Tour. Shortly after they made that announcement though, Sumerian Records announced they had dropped Miss Fortune from their roster. This prompted another statement from the band, confirming that their frontman was in jail.

Scott Weiland

UPDATE: Former Stone Temple Pilots Frontman Not Arrested After All

UPDATE: Scott Weiland released a video of him in the studio confirming that he is in fact NOT in jail. TMZ reached back out to the sheriff’s office in LA to find out who they had arrested and apparently the person is some sort of impostor. I’m not even kidding. The arrest record has Weiland’s name and birthdate on it. The police department was under the impression they had Mr. Weiland in custody. Sounds like a major mis-identification if you ask me.
