    Former Cake drummer Peter McNeal, who smashed the skins for the alt rock band from 2001 to 2004, is facing charges of child molestation, according to RollingStone.com. McNeal, who has worked as a session drummer for Norah Jones, was arrested last month in Los Angeles and then released on $250,000 bail. He appeared in court last week, facing creepy charges of "oral copulation and sexual penetration of a child under the age of 10." Unfathomable. Ugh.

    The Los Angeles Police Department have revealed that they suspect McNeal has committed other similar crimes, urging anyone who may have knowledge to come forward and help locate other possible victims.

    McNeal was previously arrested on a charge of attempted molestation in 2009. His new case is set for Feb. 10.

    We can't even ask a question about this story. It's too deplorable.
