IRON MAIDEN Drummer Due In Court Over Jones Beach Arrest

According to a posting at the IRON MAIDEN fan site, MAIDEN drummer Michael "Nicko" McBrain is due to make another court appearance in Long Island, NY this morning (Sept. 8) in connection with a July 2003 incident where McBrain was arrested for allegedly hitting a parking lot attendant — on purpose — with his black Jaguar after a disagreement over McBrain's VIP credentials before a concert at Jones Beach Theatre in Wantagh, New York.

In an interview with the "Friday Night Rocks" radio show which aired on New York's Q104.3 FM late last month, McBrain was asked where the case stands right now. "It's top secret at the moment, my friend. It's still going on," he explained. "I'm still in… what's the word? I still have to go to court over it. It's one of those things that happened that shouldn't have happened, but it did, and over time, you sort of look at it and go, 'Gosh, that was silly.' And the other guy that was involved with it, I'm sure he's sitting there thinking [the same thing]. But it's gone its course and it's still being dealt with, so I can't really talk about it right now."
