RAT Rock News

Five Finger Death Punch drummer Jeremy Spencer officially stepped down from the band in December 2018, but he didn’t waste much time lining up his next gig.

Spencer shared a photo via Instagram captioned, “I was recently sworn in as a Reserve Police Officer of the Rockport, Indiana Police Department by city Mayor Gay Ann Harney. I’m still a resident of Las Vegas, NV, but It’s an honor to be able to come back to this area when I can and serve the community as a reserve police officer and help out my brothers.” Noticeably missing is Spencer’s mohawk, which one could assume wasn’t a regulation haircut for the force.

Spencer exited FFDP due to physical issues and said in a statement, “This decision has been weighing on me for months. Now the time has finally come. I’ve been playing drums since I was six years old. After years of the physicality leading to surgeries, I feel it’s best to step down…the rigorous physical wear and tear has worn down my body to the point where I feel I can no longer deliver a performance you great fans deserve and one that brings me satisfaction and joy.”
