X Ambassadors guitarist arrested for DWI
Noah Feldshuh of X Ambassadors was arrested on Dec. 27 on drunk driving charges.
X Ambassadors guitarist Noah Feldshuh got a little bit too into living like a renegade over the holidays.
The 27-year-old musician for the alternative rock band best known for the song “Renegades” was collared on drunk driving charges in his upstate New York hometown on Dec. 27, police said on Tuesday.
Feldshuh was sitting in “a vehicle stopped in the middle of the roadway, stopped on a crosswalk, for no legitimate reason,” according to an Ithaca Police Department press release.
Officers started a traffic stop just before 2 a.m. and soon realized that Feldshuh was drunk.
He failed a field sobriety test and a Breathalyzer, with a blood alcohol content twice the legal limit.
The musician was arrested — for drunk driving, possession of marijuana and parking in a crosswalk — and later released to a sober third party.
The X Ambassadors rose to fame when “Renegades” — a song on their first full-length album — became a top-20 hit in 2015.
They’ve previously played on “The View” and “The Today Show” and on Tuesday the band announced on Twitter that they’re slated to perform on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” on Monday.
