Incubus frontman Brandon Boyd is returning to a New York City court on Monday (22NOV04) to plead guilty to possession of a weapon.

The DRIVE singer was arrested last month (06OCT04) when arriving at LaGuardia Airport from Amsterdam, The Netherlands, when baggage screeners spotted a switchblade in his carry-on luggage.

Boyd admits he "totally forgot" the item was in his bag and was charged with criminal possession of a weapon.

The star will appear in Queens County Court on Monday, where he hopes to pay a fine up to $1,000 (GBP555), instead of a possible year jail term.
