Indie power couple Sky Ferreira and Zachary Cole Smith (of DIIV) were arrested early Saturday morning in Saugerties, NY, and charged with a slew of misdemeanors.

Police pulled over a truck driven by Smith "after the driver made several vehicle and traffic infractions," and a routine registration check "showed the license plates on the truck were stolen and the driver... was wanted by the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office on an outstanding vehicle and traffic warrant."

While taking Smith into custody, the police found $420 worth of heroin on his person, as well as some Ecstasy on Ferreira, the truck's sole passenger. Ferreira resisted arrest, which added to the already colorful list of charges against the pair, tallied for your convenience below.

Zachary Cole Smith:
Two counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance
Possession of stolen property
Aggravated unlicensed driving
Unregistered motor vehicle driving without insurance
Unlicensed driver
Inadequate exhaust system.

Sky Ferreira:
Criminal possession of a controlled substance
Resisting arrest

Shortly following the arrests, musician Dev Hynes (who produced Ferreira's breakthrough hit "Everything is Embarrassing") tweeted some harsh words against heroin use. Though he mentioned neither Smith nor Ferreira by name, his timing seems linked to their arrests. Read those tweets below.
