John Keefe, 27-year-old drummer for emo-pop outfit Boys Like Girls, was arrested on September 24 outside his home in Mansfield, Massachusetts for allegedly breaking into a van following an argument with his neighbor. Keefe told police that he had been sleeping after a late night songwriting session and was awoken at 11:00 a.m. by noise created by a compressor in a carpet cleaning van parked outside his condominium. Keefe is under suspicion of climbing into the van several times to try to turn off the engine. He was released on bail after pleading innocent. He is scheduled to appear at Attleboro District Court for pretrial in December after the band returns from England.
