Drummers gotta stick together!I heard he almost narrowly had to convert his 1st gen wavedrum into a toilet seat in prison but was rescued by Bill Bruford explaining the misunderstanding via utmost British wit to the police that he actually called them a cigarette...true story.
You’ve never heard of a court record being sealed by a Judge’s order? Or that public disclosure rules vary from state to state?Arraignment is the criminal procedure for a "pre trial" hearing.
Why were charges dropped? He acted like a bonehead but I don't think there was intent from seeing the video. He wasn't really resisting that I recall (it's been a while). I bet some of the cops are Tool fans, too.
Lastly, it is not a "confidential" case as claimed - it is public record. Anybody can go to the courthouse and pull the criminal file and read all of it - that is pretty silly that somebody was quoted as saying
