Cage The Elephant singer Matt Schultz was arrested in New York last week and is being charged with criminal possession of a weapon. It all started when a hotel employee reportedly witnessed him carrying a gun into a public restroom. The next day police showed up at his room with a warrant and found two loaded .45 caliber handguns. He was then arrested.
