The cause of the confrontation seems to be some texts Moody's soon-to-be ex-wife, Holly Smith, found on Moody's cell phone that would indicate infidelity with various women. Smith then went to sleep and woke up to Moody having her in a Jiu-Jitsu submission hold, with Moody choking Smith with his arms. She claims Moody then repeatedly punched her and attempted to choke her with a blanket. Authorities were called, Moody was arrested, but the charges were eventually dropped.

TMZ also reports that the divorce papers "paint a similar picture of abuse, with injuries that include a bloody eye and busted blood vessels."

Smith is seeking financial support, claiming Moody brings in $66k a month with his band.

The last time Moody was in the news for an incident not necessarily involving his music was when the rest of his band stormed off stage after a drunken outburst, with rumors circulating that the band broke up, but eventually, they all mended fences.
