Bret Michaels and Tommy Lee Criminal Investigation?

07/28/2011
.
(Rock News Desk) A day out to a police shooting range for Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee and Poison singer Bret Michaels could result in a felony charge for one or both musicians, after a TV news channel showed photos of the visit to sheriff and local police chiefs.

The pair took time out from their US tour while they were in North Carolina to play the state's Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Charlotte on July 12. They were accompanied to the shooting range by law enforcement officers from Rowan County Sheriff's Office, and their visit is believed to have been arranged by a former policeman who now works with bands.

But Lee and Michaels could have broken state law if they have criminal records which prohibit them from using guns. North Carolina's Felony Firearms Act says it is an offence "for any person who has been convicted of a felony to purchase, own, possess, or have in his custody, care, or control any firearm." [We couldn't find reports of Michaels having a felony conviction; however Lee did plea no contest to felony abuse charge in 1998 according to the LA Times] It appears that this TV station took an active part in creating this story
