Jim Morrison Wrongly Accused of Indecent Exposure?

(Rock AAA) Doors singer Jim Morrison did not expose himself at a concert in Miami in 1969, says the band's drummer John Densmore, as Florida courts prepare to consider issuing a pardon.

Morrison was arrested, charged and convicted of indecent exposure after a police investigation into the Doors' infamous concert at the Dinner Key Auditorium. Inspired by a play he'd seen recently, the drunk Morrison attempted to incite a riot amongst the audience of 12,000, who'd been crammed into a 7000-capacity venue without air conditioning.

He was sentenced to six months in prison and a $500 fine, and the band suffered a series of tour date cancellations in the aftermath. But Morrison died while the case was being appealed. -
