Drummer Mick Brown (who has manned the kit for Ted Nugent and Dokken) was arrested last night for allegedly stealing a golf cart and driving it recklessly while under the influence of alcohol in Bangor, Maine.
Bangor police officers Steve Jordan and Jim Dearing were working at a concert venue when they were approached by security personnel, who said there was a problem behind the stage.
It was reported that Brown had taken a golf cart used by Waterfront Concerts, and was driving it around recklessly and while intoxicated.
Several people had attempted to stop him but he sped away and was last seen operating the golf cart on the foot path by the Sea Dog restaurant.
Officer Jordan reported that about a minute later he observed the golf cart with two women also on board nearby; love that he stopped to pick up two chicks.
As they 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.
At that point two other security officers physically removed Brown from the cart and placed him on the ground. The 55-year-old was arrested. No damage was reported to the cart although two traffic cones were damaged, one still under the cart, significantly so.
Brown was charged with operating under the influence of alcohol, driving to endanger, theft and assault. He was released on $4,000 bail and his initial court date is August 15.
I wonder how Ted’s going to react to this. He’ll probably give the man a raise.
