ROCKPORT, Ind. — Five Finger Death Punch drummer Jeremy Spencer departed from his band and joined a police force in his home state of Indiana.
The 46-year-old musician left his popular band in 2018 and was sworn in as a reserve officer with the Rockport Police Department on Monday.
Spencer joined Five Finger Death Punch in 2005 and left the band after undergoing surgery on his back last year. He hasn’t ended his music career entirely, though. He’ll still be working on new projects while serving part-time at his department.
“I’m still a resident of Las Vegas, Nevada, 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,” Spencer said.
The band has been a vocal supporter of law enforcement in the past. Just last year, they donated $95,000 of concert proceeds to support families of fallen law enforcement officers and released a video honoring police heroes.
