Tool drummer Danny Carey has been arrested for assault, TMZ reports.

According to the gossip site, Carey got into a fight with two other individuals at the Kansas City airport Sunday night. Carey was then arrested and taken to a nearby police station, where he was booked on misdemeanor assault. He’s since been released on bond.

TMZ adds that charges could be filed against Carey should prosecutors decide to proceed.

A rep for Tool had no comment on the report when contacted by ABC Audio.

Carey, a native of Lawrence, Kansas, was in the airport after returning from attending a Kansas University basketball game over the weekend, during which he played drums alongside the student band.

Tool is scheduled to launch a U.S. tour in January 2022.
