The CAN I PLAY WITH MADNESS sticksman, real name MICHAEL McBRAIN, was arrested on Saturday night (26JUL03) shortly before a concert at New York's JONES BEACH THEATRE.

McBrain is said to have run over the attendant because did not recognise the drummer and denied him access to the VIP car park.

The disgruntled attendant told police, "Mr McBrain's vehicle struck me in the legs."

McBrain was charged with third-degree assault and is scheduled to appear in FIRST DISTRICT COURT, Hempsted, Milwaukee on 16 September (03).
