Fall Out Boy singer Patrick Stump is scared of what his mother is going to say to him about his arrest for driving without a valid license
Patrick Stump is worried about his mother's reaction to his arrest.
The Fall Out Boy singer was arrested in Beverly Hills on Tuesday (25.08.09) on a two-year-old warrant for driving without a valid license, and though the star admits the offence, he insists it was accidental.
He said in a statement: "All I really have to say is ignorance of the law isn't innocence. I didn't want to give up my Illinois driver's license and was unaware that was a crime. It is, by the way, in the state of California. Lesson learned. I technically broke a law, so technically I deserve whatever I get. But man, is my mom gonna be p**sed."
Patrick was released on $15,000 bail after the incident but could face a maximum of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted.
Following his arrest, Patrick was mocked by his bandmate Pete Wentz, who posted on his Twitter page: "dude when I said u gotta be the bad dude in fob I didn't mean 2 get arrested. How many peeps did u shank in jail. (sic)"
Meanwhile, John Mayer has pledged to donate $25,000 to charity after police photographs of him being arrested for the same offence as the 'Dance Dance' singer were unearthed.
The singer revealed his criminal past on Twitter and challenged a member of staff from gossip website TMZ to unearth his mug shots.
He posted: "I was arrested for the same offence as Patrick Stump. It's the lamest answer to the question, 'Why you in here?'
"If Harvey Levin at TMZ can produce my mug shot, I will donate 25k to the charity of his choice. Who else is in? Harvey is Freedom of Information Act King."
Within 14 hours, the previously-unseen photograph of the 'Gravity' star from his May 2001 arrest for driving with a suspended license in Atlanta was published.
