We found out yesterday that Tom Meighan had parted ways with his band of 23 years (Kasabian)
and now we know why
From the BBC:
He pleaded guilty at Leicester Magistrates' Court to attacking Vikki Ager while drunk on 9 April.
Ms Ager hit her head on a hamster cage after being thrown across a room. The musician also grabbed her leg and hit her on the head, the court heard.
Kasabian said they were "left with no choice but to ask Tom to leave the band", adding there is "no way we can condone his assault conviction".
A child witnessed the "sustained assault", the court was told, and contacted 999 to report that a "domestic incident was taking place".
Meighan was given an 18-month community order and told to carry out 200 hours of unpaid work.
The band issued this statement
