Journey Drummer

Sentenced to Anger Management

2/22/2012 1:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0221_deen_EX_01
Journey drummer Deen Castronovo is going back to school ... anger management school ... as part of a plea deal in his domestic violence case.

TMZ broke the story ... 47-year-old Castronovo was arrested on January 20 after allegedly attacking his GF at his Oregon home.

Castronovo originally pled not guilty -- but has since worked out a deal with prosecutors in which he agreed to complete 80 hours of community service and complete anger management classes.

If Castronovo completes his legal obligations and stays out of trouble for 180 days ... the court will dismiss his conviction.

OK....where are all of these "advocates" for domestic violence? I guess the nasty comments are only meant for "Certain" celebrities. Damn TMZ…that’s all you have to say on the matter? Oh, I forgot…there’s probably no photo available for anyone to scrutinize. Didn’t Hugh Hefener’s son just get arrested for domestic assault??? You people do like to pick and choose who you persecute.

He's such a jerk. I doubt he'll finish his probation and I can't believe there was nothing about drug and alcohol abuse. Considering the state he was in when this happened, it should have been second on the list. Star struck judge, I guess.

These guys need to straighten their crap out, get Steve Perry back, and just go play music.

Deen, if you were not guilty, you wouldn't work out a deal with the DA's office.
And by the way, Journey sucked then and they suck now.

I think TMZ only likes to put certain people in their place like Chris Brown, Mike Vick, Tracy Morgan, Tiger. You know... those kind of people. This Journey guy will get a lame zinger from the short balding guy and that's it.

Sucks, dude's an underrated drummer. His best drumming was when He played with Tony MacAlpine. Who's knows what happened? These are strange times and we are strange people.

WTH!! Are these the original members of Journey and if so, why are they all turning into douchbags?? As far as anger management goes, don't take any tips from Chris Brown either. Focus on the music, you jackasses!

Deen's always been the sweetest guy. Everyone is entitled to one bad night. Since Deen is already involved in a church and community service he'll be able to turn this situation around fast.
