Drugs Found On Bret Michaels’ Tour Bus
July 22, 2010
Bret Michaels, former lead singer of the 1980’s glam-metal band Poison, was onboard one of his tour buses when police found marijuana inside after it was pulled over on Interstate 69, in DeKalb County Wednesday night.
According to the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Department, around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, deputies pulled over two tour buses near the 137 mile marker on Interstate 69 near the Ashley exit.
After getting license and registration information from the drivers, trained Narcotics Detection K9s found marijuana on both of the buses, as well as a quantity of Schedule II controlled substances on the first bus. Deputies then learned Bret Michaels was onboard the second bus during the traffic stop.
Charges will be forwarded to the DeKalb County Prosecutor’s Office for review.
Michaels was most recently in the news after suffering from a brain hemorrhage while a contestant on Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice, which he eventually won.
