One golf cart: $4,000. Two traffic cones: $80. Being drunk enough to pull this off: Probably at least $100. Bail: Another $4,000. This story altogether: Priceless. Last night, Ted Nugent was playing a show in Bangor, ME that was part of the Waterfront Concert series. The band was paired up with Styx and REO Speedwagon, which altogether sounds like a solid night already. But apparently, Ted Nugent drummer Mick Brown was in for a bit more fun and stole a golf cart.
According to the police report, two police officers were made aware of the missing golf cart by the concert venue’s security personnel around 9:45pm. Apparently Brown was intoxicated and driving the golf cart around the Front Street recklessly, speeding past the officers once only to reappear with two women on board. In the end, one of the officers managed to physically remove him from his new ride after also running over two traffic cones, one still stuck under the cart. Brown, who is currently still in the works of forming a new group with some of his Dokken bandmates, reportedly resisted by shoving the officer. Eventually, Brown was arrested and brought to the Penobscot County Jail. The official charge is operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, driving to endanger, theft and assault.
He was released on a $4,000 bail, and the mugshot they took of him at the Penobscot County Jail (as seen above) all but screams “That was so worth it!” I mean, his nickname is “Wild” Mick Brown, and we now know which member of both Ted Nugent and Dokken we’d most want to party with. The court date is set for August 15, so we’ll find out then just how funny Lady Justice herself thought Brown’s stunt was.
