The Maine Frontman John O'Callaghan Arrested

The Maine frontman John O'Callaghan was arrested after their concert Thursday night in Ft. Lauderdale for refusing to follow a police officer's orders to get out of the street when a group of fans bombarded him.

One fan who witnessed the arrest wrote into Poison Ivy to tell the story.

Around 11 p.m., after Boys like Girls performed, everyone went outside and John O was mobbed by a bunch of girls who wanted autographs from him. This took place in the road, next to the sidewalk. The [police officer] told John to get out of the road and to go onto the sidewalk or else he would be arrested. John was trying to yell at the girls in the nicest way possible to get onto the sidewalk so that he wouldn't be arrested. The girls didn't listen because they wanted to take pictures with him. John spoke back to the cop saying he wasn't going to move. The cop then walked John across the street and pushed him against a tree and handcuffed him. All the fans ran alongside to see what was happening and could not believe what was going on. I only remember John saying 'Are you serious?' He was extremely upset about the situation and did not know why he was getting arrested. Neither did anyone."

Check out the video above to watch a portion of the arrest, and the most "Noooooo's!" you've ever heard in your life.
