Mick Brown Explains Golf Cart Police Chase

(Classic Rock) 'Wild' Mick Brown says last year's golf cart cop chase drama was the most trouble he's ever been in. The drummer was touring as part of Ted Nugent's band last July when he was arrested for operating under the influence of alcohol, driving to endanger, theft and assault.

He was later fined $1000 after a plea-bargain. But he says it was a daily occurrence that just happened to get out of control. Brown who co-founded Dokken and plays with offshoot band T&N tells BackstageAxxess:

"We're playing these big venues which all have golf carts to get around. I love riding around on these things. The bass player and I do it a lot we get drunk and we drive around. It's a lot of fun. Whenever I see a key in one we hop in and go. It was nothing out of the ordinary.

"So this day I happened to do it and there were some girls I knew in the audience. I went and got them. We were riding around, everyone was having a fun time, then I came to an area where the security guy didn't really want me to go. I told him to [explicit], and that didn't fly really well. He called the police and said, 'This guy stole a golf cart.'"

"The police show up, and at this point I happen to be on a public road, trying to get back into the venue. I got tackled, shackled, the whole thing, and went to jail." more.
