Bauhaus' Peter Murphy Arrested
He was arrested in Glendale, California, this past weekend, following an incident in which he's alleged to have injured another motorist while driving, then fleeing the scene. He was followed by an eyewitness, who used his own vehicle to block any further escape, telling Glendale Police Department that "he was afraid he would kill someone with his driving."
The incident took place just before noon on Saturday. Murphy is accused of striking a car, driving round it and leaving the scene. The wounded driver was able to note his license plate number and another witness took a photo of his damaged vehicle.
The Glendale News Press reports officers describing the singer as "very confused," having difficulty recalling the day and time. He admitted to having taken his prescription pills for depression and to feeling jet-lagged after a flight.
Investigators found a bag believed to contain crystal meth in the police car where Murphy had been held. He denied ownership. More including the mug shot
