Tool drummer Danny Carey has a court date after being arrested in Kansas City over the weekend, Billboard reports.

According to a citation obtained by the publication, Carey is due to appear in municipal court on January 12, 2022. The date falls between two shows on Tool’s scheduled 2022 tour: January 11 in Tacoma, Washington, and January 13 in Boise, Idaho.

Carey was arrested at the Kansas City International Airport this past Sunday after getting into an alleged altercation with another individual, according to TMZ. He was booked on misdemeanor assault and subsequently released on bond. A rep for Tool offered no comment when contacted by ABC Audio.

The citation obtained by Billboard also says Carey allegedly used a homophobic slur in accosting the other individual.
