Grateful Dead's Mickey Hart Wanted For Assault
The owner of Hart's tourbus claims he was attacked by the drummerThe Examiner reports that an arrest warrant has been issued for Hart relating to an alleged assault on Cecil "CJ" Curtsinger, who owns the tourbus which Hart is currently using.
Curtsinger claims that the incident took place after a Mickey Hart Band show at Terrapin Hill Farm in Kentucky when he was summoned to the tourbus before Hart "threw me down, started [to] cuss [at] me, hitting me, pushing me around then told me to get off MY bus."
Hart, who is currently in Arkansas, has dismissed the allegations, saying on his Facebook page "I am totally baffled by a bizarre claim of assault by me coming out of Kentucky – the home of Bluegrass and a state I love dearly. Any accusation or claim of assault against me is completely false and without any basis whatsoever. I played drums on 'Shakedown Street,' but I never expected to be 'The Victim or the Crime.'"
