Bille Joe Armstrong was arrested
Billie Joe Armstrong is an American musician, singer, songwriter and occasional actor. He is best known as the lead vocalist, principal songwriter, and guitarist of the punk rock band Green Day, which Armstrong co-founded with Mike Dirnt.
Raised in Rodeo, California, Armstrong developed an interest in music at a young age, and recorded his first song at the age of five. He met Mike Dirnt while attending elementary school, and the two instantly bonded over their mutual interest in music, forming the band Sweet Children when the two were 15 years old. The band changed its name to Green Day, and would later achieve massive commercial success. Armstrong has also pursued musical projects outside of Green Day's work, including numerous collaborations with other musicians.
He also co-owns the record label Adeline Records, with his wife Adrienne and skateboarder Jim Thiebaud, with the collaboration of Green Day's guitarist Jason White and more recently Green Day's manager Pat Magnarella.
In 1995, Billie Joe was arrested and fined $141 after mooning at the audience during a gig in Milwaukee. After getting released on bail, Armstrong together with his band Green Day apologised to the audience and the concert was held again.
He was also arrested on DUI Charges on January 5th 2003 and released on $1200 bail. He received a breathalyzer reading of 0.17%, more than twice the state's legal limit of 0.08%.
