Ted Nugent Drummer Mick Brown Arrested for Apparent Drunken Golf Cart Theft
It’s too bad we already posted our Musician Mug Shots feature, because this one of Ted Nugent drummer ‘Wild’ Mick Brown is absolutely priceless. Brown was arrested Sunday, July 8, for drunkenly stealing a golf cart after playing a show in Bangor, Maine.
The July 8 show at the Bangor Waterfront Pavilion showcased Styx, REO Speedwagon and Ted Nugent, with the doors opening early at 4:30pm. Not long after Ted Nugent and his band finished their opening set, venue security notified Bangor police officers on the scene about an issue behind the stage. It turned out that Brown, 55, had allegedly stolen a staff gold cart at around 9:45PM and was hammered while taking his illegal joyride.
According to the Bangor Daily News, Brown at least had the sense to pick up two ladies with his newly acquired whip while evading several people attempting to stop the drummer. Eventually, a security officer managed to stop the golf cart, but Brown would make yet another mistake as he shoved the officer, leading to various security members physically dragging Brown out of the cart and placing him under arrest.
Brown, who also drums for Dokken, was booked on charges of operating under the influence, driving to endanger, theft and assault, as you can see by his smiley mug shot above. The drummer posted bail at $4,000 and was released from police custody. Brown, however, will have to appear in court on Aug. 15.
