Rikki Rockett, the drummer for Poison, was arrested at LAX on a rape warrant issued from Mississippi. Rikki was performing with the group in New Zealand and was just getting off a flight. Talk about major jetlag. Get off a 34 million hour flight and get arrested. His ears were probably still plugged up. I wonder if they let him pee first. I always have to pee after landing. ANYWAYS!
46-year-old Rikki was arrested on Monday, taken to jail, booked and it looks like he has been released since then. The LA Daily News reports that no details were given about the rape warrant.
Rikki worked as a hairdresser, lifeguard, dishwasher, Emergency Medical Technician and a suit salesman before started Poison with Bret Michaels in the 1980s.
Rape charge in Mississippi? If convicted, he’s totally going to get the death penalty. They are hardcore down there! Shit, they will probably issue a public stoning.
I guess this means Rikki is not going to star in Rock of Love 3?
