According to an incident report, the West Palm Beach musician was arrested back in March on domestic battery charges. On July 13, he was charged and obtained a "plea and pass" agreement. No clue why Pitchfork broke March's breaking news in August, but it definitely got a rise from fans.
The internet quickly flooded with commentary on the matter. From Chris Brown comparisons to an especially disturbing remark by a horny female, reactions are mixed but mostly negative. Some took it out on Twitter, while others posted directly on the band's Facebook page.
Surfer Blood has yet to comment on the matter, so what follows are a few reactions gathered from around the internet.
