Noel Fisher a/k/a Detail – a Grammy Award-winning music producer and songwriter who worked with the likes of Beyonce, Maroon 5, Jennifer Lopez, and Nicki Minaj – was last month arrested on 15 charges of sexual assault and 5 additional charges of felony assault [1A].
The charges stem from incidents between 2010 and 2018. Bail was set at $6.29 million.

In 2019, model Kristina Buch was awarded $15 million in a suit alleging Fisher raped her [1B].
