Michelle Branch was arrested for domestic assault Thursday night after she allegedly slapped her estranged husband, Patrick Carney, following her claims that he cheated on her.

In a since-deleted tweet posted at 1:28 a.m. on early. Thursday, Aug. 11, Branch wrote, “Just found out my husband cheated on me … while I was home with our 6-month-old daughter.”

About a half-hour later at 2 a.m., police were called to their Nashville home for a potential domestic disturbance. While there, Branch told police she slapped the Black Keys member in the face “one to two times.” A rep for the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to Rolling Stone that Branch was taken into custody and released on $1,000 bail the same day.

By early Thursday evening, Branch announced that she was leaving Carney. The couple have been married for three years and share two children, a four-year-old son and six-month-old daughter.

“To say that I am totally devastated doesn’t even come close to describing how I feel for myself and for my family. The rug has been completely pulled from underneath me and now I must figure out how to move forward,” Branch said in a statement (via People). “With such small children, I ask for privacy and kindness.”

Branch is scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 7 in connection with the incident. Reps for Branch and Carney did not immediately return Rolling Stone’s requests for comment.
