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.”
For context, below is a photo of Spencer taken while he was in FFDP. Talk about a transformation! We wish him all the best in this post-Punch chapter.
