On the drive home (home?) from Albuquerque to Portland, my ex-boyfriend got shitfaced and roughed me up in a Sacramento hotel. I escaped from the room through a blitzkrieg of violence and talked to hotel security, who called the fuzz. [Elyse Sewell]
When the po po came to the scene, Marty showed them a bite-mark on his arm (which Elyse claims was inflicted in self-defense) and told them he wanted to press charges of domestic violence against Elyse. The face arrested Elyse, who spent a night in jail before posting bail.
The 5′9″, 144-pound Marty has also been arrested for Corporal Injury to a Spouse/Cohabitant and Domestic Violence (picked up last night around 8:30pm), but he hasn’t quite figured out how to post bail–he’s still in jail, and you can follow his status of freedom on SacSheriff.com by searching under his name “Martin Lesley Crandall”. If anyone wants to spring $25,000, you can probably get really great seats to the next Shins show.
Both Elyse and Marty will be in court on 1/8 in Sacramento to have a hearing. [Modern Age]
