Ted Nugent Drummer Mick Brown Pleads Guilty to Golf Cart DUI Charges

Mick Brown
Penobscot County Jail

Several months after entering a “not guilty” plea in the court case stemming from his arrest for driving a golf cart while intoxicated, drummer Mick Brown has apparently had a change of heart.

Maine’s WABI-TV reports (via Blabbermouth) that Brown reversed his plea as part of a deal; in exchange for admitting to operating the cart while intoxicated, prosecutors agreed to drop an assortment of other charges associated with the incident, including driving to endanger, theft and assault.

Brown’s plea closes the book on a slightly surreal series of events that started in July, when Brown — who was in Bangor, Maine as part of Ted Nugent‘s touring band — stole a golf cart from staff at the venue and drove it around the waterfront in spite of efforts by several passersby to make him stop. Officers eventually caught up with Brown — who was toting a couple of female passengers on his joyride — on a pedestrian walkway, where he allegedly got physical with a security guard before being forcibly removed from the cart.

One of rock’s busiest drummers, Brown started his recording career as a founding member of Dokken before using the band’s extended periods of inactivity to start Tooth and Nail with fellow Dokken vets George Lynch and Jeff Pilson. He’s been appearing with Nugent since the 2006 ‘Unleash the Beast’ tour; with Nugent currently off the road, Brown is free to focus on promoting Dokken’s latest album, the recently released ‘Broken Bones,’ and brush up on his golf cart driving skills.
