So You Think You Can Dance’s Joshua Allen Charged With Domestic Violence
Distressing news from the world of So You Think You Can Dance today. Joshua Allen, who won the fourth season of the FOX dance competition, has been charged with domestic violence.
Joshua allegedly attacked his girlfriend twice in the past three months — strangling the woman in April and then chasing her in a coffee shop, throwing a vase at her, and vandalizing the premises in June.
Now TMZ says he’s been charged with two felony counts of willfully injuring his girlfriend; one felony count of assault with a deadly weapon; and four misdemeanor counts related to battery, vandalism, and violating the protective order.
The 27-year-old could get as much as 10 years in state prison if he’s convicted of all those charges. The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office is handling the case.
In addition to his SYTYCD fame, Joshua also appeared in Step Up 3D, Dance Your Ass Off, Community, and American Horror Story.
The Fort Worth, Texas-native returned to So You Think You Can Dance as a mentor this season but was unexpectedly replaced by Marko Germar before the first live episode on July 11. Now it appears we know why.
