Exclusive: girlfriend of OneRepublic drummer describes fight
DENVER – Edward Fisher, drummer for the popular alt rock band OneRepublic, faces charges of Assault, Disturbing the Peace and Destruction of Private Property after -according to his girlfriend- he went on a violent rampage inside a Denver home.
Police responded to the home in the 600 block of Clermont St. early Tuesday morning.
Loni Rae says the incident began with a verbal argument, but quickly escalated.
“Things just got out of hand and he snapped…and my entire cabinets are ripped off from my walls,” Rae told reporter Greg Nieto in an exclusive interview. “I had my feet up against the wall trying not to let him in, and he busted through the door and he pushed me through the cabinets.”
Rae did not explain the nature of the argument.
Fisher, 38, is being held at the Denver Justice Center pending a court appearance Wednesday afternoon.
He declined our request for an interview.
“I would never let a man treat my daughter the way I’ve been treated,” Rae said.
OneRepublic, originally from Colorado Springs, was nominated for a Grammy award in 2009 for the hit song, “Apologize.”
