Ratt Drummer Bobby Blotzer Arrested For DUI
June 9, 2010
Inside sources have tipped Metal Sludge off that RATT drummer Bobby Blotzer was recently arrested for a DUI. After a little research Metal Sludge was able to obtain the following public records that show Blotz was indeed arrested.
The rumor Metal Sludge heard was there was an arrest over Memorial Day weekend at Lake Havasu in Arizona and Bob was at the ‘wheel’ of a boat. Turns out, that this arrest information shows exactly that at the Supreme Court of Arizona website.

The other day Ratt cancelled their European tour and issued the following press release.
RATT have been forced to cancel their upcoming European tour dates. Vocalist Stephen Pearcy will be undergoing urgent hernia surgery this week. The band regrets missing the European dates on the heels of the release of their first album in eleven years, INFESTATION, which enjoyed a high chart debut in European territories.
Ratt shares this disappointment with all their European fans who planned to attend the shows at Sweden Rock, Sauna Open Air Festival, UK Download, Hellfest, Grasspop and Gods of Metal as well as their other dates. The band is looking into rescheduling as many of the shows as possible.
Pearcy’s doctors anticipate a full recovery in time for Ratt’s North American touring schedule, which includes a run with The Scorpions, beginning in July and running through September.
We wish Pearcy a speedy recovery.
