Justin Townes Earle postpones tour dates, including Rumba show in Columbus

But apparently Jessica Lea Mayfield will still perform at Rumba Cafe.

JTE is entering rehab after charges “of battery, public intoxication and forcibly resisting arrest. The club’s owner and daughter claim he smashed up his dressing room and hit the daughter.” Official explanation:

Justin Townes Earle has decided to suspend the remaining dates on his tour and enter a rehabilitation facility. Earle is strongly committed to confronting his on-going struggle with addiction and thanks his family, friends and fans for their continued support through this difficult time.

In regards to the misdemeanor charges recently filed in Indianapolis, Earle released the following statement earlier this week: “Unfortunately, reports surfacing online about the incident in Indianapolis are not accurate. I have been advised by counsel that I should not comment on a pending criminal matter, but suffice to say that I am looking forward to having my day in court. I would also like to say that I oppose violence against women in any form.”
