Howie Day Busted For Domestic Violence After Allegedly Assaulting His Girlfriend Outside Seattle Airport

Longtime singer Howie Day — best known for his enormous 2004 mega-hit single Collide — was busted for domestic violence late last month in Seattle after allegedly assaulting his girlfriend at SeaTac Airport.

The alleged incident is only coming to light now after a police report was obtained by TMZ, even though it took place several weeks ago, but the allegations are serious and reports say there may be surveillance video involved, as well.

The incident allegedly occurred when Carrie Pencek, Howie’s girlfriend of eight years, came to pick him up at the airport.

Even before Carrie arrived, Howie was apparently already “throwing a tantrum” that was captured on surveillance video — and that included slamming his guitar case onto the sidewalk.

By the time Carrie arrived, Howie started slamming the hatch of their Toyota RAV4, causing significant damage to the car.

And then after Carrie got out of the car to help him with his bags, Howie allegedly started yelling at her and pushing her, too.

Howie apparently ran away from the scene at that point, after which Carrie flagged down a police officer and alerted them to this behavior — behavior which she apparently told cops occurs when Howie is drunk.

Seattle police pretty quickly arrested Howie after the incident and eventually charged him with one count of fourth-degree assault. He pled not guilty, and he’s scheduled to appear in court later this month.

According to Carrie, she reported to the police that all this may have started because Howie has been on edge lately. The singer’s career has stalled, and, apparently according to Carrie, he’s running out of cash.
