‘Wild’ Mick Brown Pleads Guilty To Driving Golf Cart While Drunk
November 13, 2012
‘Wild’ Mick Brown, accused of driving drunk in a golf cart around the Bangor Waterfront in July, pleaded guilty Tuesday to OUI. The 55-year-old Ted Nugent drummer was fined $1,000 according to WABI TV5.
Brown didn’t appear in court in Bangor, instead his lawyer entered Brown’s change of plea. In exchange for the guilty plea, three other charges — driving to endanger, theft and assault — were dropped.
Dubbed ‘Wild’ Mick in the metal community, Brown is best known as co-founder of 1980s hitmakers Dokken and later Lynch Mob. He is also a member of T&N — who released their debut album ‘Slave To The Empire’ on October 31st through Rat Pak Records — with former Dokken guitarist George Lynch and bassist Jeff Pilson.
Brown was arrested by Bangor police on Sunday, July 8, after he allegedly stole a golf cart used by Waterfront Concerts staff and was drunkenly driving it around the Front Street area at about 9:45 p.m. Bangor police Officers Steve Jordan and Jim Dearing were working at the waterfront pavilion during the show featuring Styx, REO Speedwagon and Nugent when security alerted them to an incident behind the stage, according to a news release from police Sgt. Paul Edwards issued on July 9.
Several people had attempted to stop Brown, but he had sped away on the golf cart down the footpath near the Sea Dog restaurant, the sergeant said. Jordan later observed the cart with two women on board near the Railroad Street crossing and attempted to stop Brown, again without success.
After Brown had accelerated past officers, Edwards said, a security officer got close enough to stop him, but Brown gave the officer a shove. Two other security team members removed Brown from the cart and he was placed under arrest.
