Arrest Warrant for Dead’s Mickey Hart?

 

 

Fan decides to take a
bus to Shakedown Street?

Details are admittedly a little sketchy at the moment, but
as RollingStone.com is reporting, an attendee at a Mickey Hart Band concert
last week at Terrapin Hill Farm in Harrodsburg,
KY, is claiming that the
bandleader and erstwhile Grateful Dead drummer assaulted him (or her; that part
isn’t clear either). According to the report, “police issued a warrant for Hart
after the alleged victim filed a report and pressed charges for assault. Hart
denied the charges.”

 

Hart subsequently issued a statement, posted to his Facebook
page,
that read thusly:

 

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.”
