Police: Dokken Co-Founder Shoved a Security Officer During Backstage Joyride With Two Females
Ted Nugent's drummer faces several charges after police in Bangor, Maine, say he was seen driving drunk in a golf cart stolen from a concert venue.
Officers working at Nugent's Sunday night concert at the city's waterfront pavilion were told that 55-year-old Mick Brown was intoxicated, had stolen the cart and was driving it recklessly on a foot path.
According to the Bangor Daily News, police officer Steve Jordan spotted Brown driving with two females on the cart and attempted to stop the drummer without success. When officers tried to stop the cart again, Brown sped past them and shoved a security officer. Two security officers then removed Brown from the cart, and he was arrested.
Brown, of Cave Creek, Ariz., was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, driving to endanger, theft and assault. He was released on $4,000 bail and is due back in court Aug. 15.
Dubbed "Wild" Mick in the metal community, Brown is best known as co-founder of 1980s hitmakers Dokken. He is also a member of Tooth & Nail with former Dokken guitarist George Lynch.
Nugent was in town as part of his tour with Styx and REO Speedwagon. The rocker's next date is set for Tuesday (July 10) in Boston.
