Warrant Issued for Mickey Hart’s Arrest
A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart. According to a TMZ report, Hart assaulted someone at a Mickey Hart Band show on September 8 at Terrapin Hill Farm in Harrodsburg, KY. The alleged victim of the assault is said to have filed a police report following the incident, resulting in the charges against Hart.
As of press time, Hart’s camp has yet to comment on the incident.
Update: Hart has now posted a statement to his Facebook page, which reads:
I am totally baffled by a bizarre claim of assault by me coming out of Kentucky – the home of Bluegrass and a state I love dearly. Any accusation or claim of assault against me is completely false and without any basis whatsoever. I played drums on “Shakedown Street,” but I never expected to be “The Victim or the Crime.”
