The Grateful Dead's Mickey Hart is totally confused by an assault charge filed against him by a fan in Harrodsburg, Kentucky. A warrant was issued for his arrest following a Mickey Hart Band show on Saturday (September 8th) at Terrapin Hill Farm.
Hart spoke to Rolling Stone and explained: "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.'"
