Various sources have uncovered more details on JTE’s JAIL time after a show on Sept. 16, 2010 at Radio Radio in Indianapolis, IN.

According to “[the performance] apparently went horribly wrong, with Earle getting in verbal altercations with the audience and venue staff, reportedly trying to start fights and breaking things, and eventually taking it outside where he continued to taunt audience members until he was eventually arrested.

“Speaking to the next day, Earle confirmed that assault and battery charges were filed against him by Radio Radio, and that a physical altercation broke out after the venue decided to dock his pay. They also reported that Justin’s bass player Bryn Davies was AWOL from the band for the Louisville show. Earle was docked $200 for trashing the dressing room, breaking a mirror, and some tables and chairs.

According to My Old Kentucky Blog, Justin hit the owner’s daughter with a closed fist, and that he resisted arrest until the police were able to pin him down and arrest him.”
