David Marroquin, the founder of Michigan record label Vanity Press Records, has been accused of assault by his girlfriend, Molly De Wind. State records show that he has a warrant out for an aggravated domestic violence charge in connection with an alleged incident that took place on August 5th.
On September 1st, De Wind apparently used the Vanity Press Twitter page to share a graphic account of her alleged abuse. “Hi, I’m Molly De Wind, Dave’s mysterious girlfriend,” reads the tweet. “Three weeks ago your friend Dave beat me so bad that I had to get reconstructive surgery on my cheek and nose and I’ll never look the same.”
Later in the day, the account tweeted that Marroquin had a warrant out for his arrest.

Public case records from the 15th Judicial District Court in Ann Arbor, Michigan obtained by Resident Advisor confirm that a warrant is indeed out for Marroquin’s arrest. It was filed on August 6th for an aggravated domestic violence incident that allegedly took place on the 5th.
Pittsburgh producer Ali Berger later tweeted that he spoke to De Wind on the phone and she confirmed she was safe but warned that “Dave is dangerous and if you see him you should call the police.” Vanity Press Records signees like Lars, Juana, AceMo and Martyn Bootyspoon have since expressed wishes to have their released removed from the label’s catalogue.
