Mickey Hart Issues Statement on Assault Warrant

Earlier this evening, we received an official statement from former Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart on the warrant issued out of Kentucky for an alleged assault.
I am totally baffled by a bizarre claim of assault by me coming out of Kentucky – the home of Bluegrass and a state I love dearly. Any accusation or claim of assault against me is completely false and without any basis whatsoever. I played drums on “Shakedown Street,” but I never expected to be “The Victim or the Crime.” - Mickey Hart
The warrant was issued over a September 8 appearance by the Mickey Hart Band at Terrapin Hill Farms in Harrodsburg, KY where a concert goer alleges that Hart somehow assaulted him/her. A warrant is only issued when a person decides to press charges.
