‘America’s Got Talent’ finalist Michael Ketterer has been arrested for felony domestic violence. We have more details about the shocking case here.
Michael Ketterer, who came in fifth place on America’s Got Talent season 13, was taken into custody by LAPD on Thursday, September 20, in Hollywood after getting into a fight with his wife. When the police arrived on the scene, Ketterer’s wife had a “visible red mark” on her body, according to law enforcement sources. Ketterer was cuffed and booked on felony domestic abuse charges; he was released after posting a $50,000 bail, LAPD confirms to HollywoodLife.
Ketterer told TMZ that the arrest was a big “misunderstanding.” He said that he and his wife did get into an argument in their hotel room, and the cops were called (unclear who called them), but his wife told police that she didn’t want to press any charges. Ketterer was arrested anyway, with police allegedly telling him “the law’s the law.” Ketterer’s charges will likely be downgraded to a misdemeanor because his wife’s injury was minor. The case will be referred to the LA City Attorney, according to TMZ.
