Snow Patrol keyboard player TOM SIMPSON was arrested on drugs charges on Saturday (7Jul07) just hours after the band performed at LIVE EARTH in London.
Simpson was taken into custody at Northolt RAF base after failing to appear in court in Scotland accused of possession of Class A substances.
A spokesperson for London's Metropolitan Police says, "A 35-year-old man wanted on a sheriff warrant was arrested. He will remain in custody until transferred."
With Simpson behind bars, the Northern Irish rockers have been forced to find a replacement for their set at the T In The Park festival in Scotland on Sunday (8Jul07).
