Shin or shit? Martin Crandall arrested for domestic violence

The keyboardist with the Shins, Martin Crandall, has been arrested following a violent spat with his (now) ex-girlfriend, America's Next Top Model alumnus Elyses Sewell. She blogs her side:

On the drive home (home?) from Albuquerque to Portland, my ex-boyfriend got shitfaced and roughed me up in a Sacramento hotel. I escaped from the room through a blitzkrieg of violence and talked to hotel security, who called the fuzz.

2.) Because he had a bite mark, inflicted in self-defense, on his arm, Marty told the police to PRESS CHARGES OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AGAINST ME. Now I am a felon.

Everything and everyone turns up in court on Tuesday for an initial hearing.
