Guns N' Roses Guitarist Discusses Police Helicopter Controversy

(hennemusic) Guns N' Roses guitarist DJ Ashba spoke with FOX 5 Las Vegas TV's "More Access" program about his private helicopter ride by local police last August that resulted in the demotion of three officers involved in the incident.

An investigation revealed that Captain David O'Leary and Officer Ray Horsley violated department policy when they took Ashba for a "fly along" - on the public dime - as part of the guitarist's marriage proposal to girlfriend (now wife) Nathalia Henao.

"They act as if we jumped a fence and stole a helicopter late at night, and that's not even what happened," Ashba told "More Access." "I'd taken a helicopter ride a year before, posted a 'Thank You' on my Instagram - not a peep. They offered up a ride again, and I said, 'Sure, that'd be great. It's a big day for me.'"

Ashba says what's been reported in the media is not an accurate depiction of that evening. more on this story
