Unfortunate news out of Camden, Maine, as beloved folk singer Don McLean was reportedly arrested on low-level assault charges early Monday morning. McLean has since posted bail, and no details have been released, but reports are indicating that the singer was transported to the Knox County Jail just after 3 AM.

The news comes as a shock to longtime fans, who know McLean for his charity work with the Don McLean Foundation. The singer also recently auctioned off his original, hand-written lyrics to “American Pie” for one million dollars, saying that his motivation for selling the lyrics was to provide some additional income for his family.

We will be sure to update once more information about the crime has been released.
