Hunt said he knows little about the band's situation. "They're really hard to reach because only one of them has a cell phone, and it's like almost out of batteries," Hunt said. "The charger is in the car that got taken."
Khan was released after 3 a.m. Friday, a jail spokesman said. Klein was still being held on a $3,000 cash bond Friday afternoon. Hunt said the band members spent part of Friday meeting with a lawyer, "just trying to get their situation straight."
