Mick Brown, Drummer for Ted Nugent, Arrested After Druken Joyride in Stolen Golf Cart
Authorities in Maine say Ted Nugent’s drummer, Mick Brown, faces several charges after he allegedly stole a golf cart from a concert venue and used it for a drunken joyride.
According to police, the incident occurred after Nugent’s show at the Bangor Waterfront on Sunday at around 10pm.
Brown, who was reportedly intoxicated during his “adventure,” evaded several people who tried to stop him and somehow picked up two women along the way, the department says on its Facebook page.
“As (officers) attempted to stop Brown, he accelerated past them, past a third officer and when a security officer got close enough to stop him, Brown allegedly shoved the officer,” the police reported. “At that point two other security officers physically removed Brown from the cart and he was placed under arrest.”
Following the bizzare ordeal, the 55-year-old drummer was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, driving to endanger, theft and assault. He was later released on $4,000 bail.
The Bangor Daily News reports that Mick Brown is due in court Aug. 15.
