Mick Brown, the drummer in Ted Nugent’s band, faces several charges after police in Bangor, Maine, say he was driving drunk in a golf cart stolen from a concert venue. According to reports, there were also two females on board the cart at the time.
Officers working at Nugent’s concert last night at Bangor’s Waterfront Pavilion – also featuring Styx and REO Speedwagon – were told that Brown was intoxicated, had stolen the cart and was driving it recklessly on a foot path.
Police say when officers tried to stop the cart, Brown accelerated past them and shoved a security officer.
Two security officers then managed to extricate Brown from the cart, and he was arrested.
Brown was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, driving to endanger, theft and assault. He was released on $4,000 bail.
Officially the most rock’n'roll story of the year so far.
