Bret Michaels And Tommy Lee Criminal Investigation?
A day out to a police shooting range for Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee and Poison singer Bret Michaels could result in a felony charge for one or both musicians, after a TV news channel showed photos of the visit to chief cops. The pair took time out from their US tour while they were in North Carolina to play the state's Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Charlotte on July 12. They were accompanied to the shooting range by law enforcement officers from Rowan County Sheriff's Office, and their visit is believed to have been arranged by a former policeman who now works with bands. But Lee and Michaels could have broken state law if they have criminal records which prohibit them from using guns. North Carolina's Felony Firearms Act says it is an offence "for any person who has been convicted of a felony to purchase, own, possess, or have in his custody, care, or control any firearm." WSOCTV unearthed photos of them firing weapons, and broadcast an interview with someone who lives near the shooting range saying he didn't know whether it was legal. Under the headline "Rock stars with guns" Station anchor Allison Latos says: "The sheriff and local police chiefs didn't know about it until we brought it to their attention." "It could be illegal if any of those men have criminal records that prohibits them from using guns." "There were officers from the Rowan County Sheriff's Office, Salisbury and Spencer police departments with the rockers. We found that out when the sheriff and both chiefs called me to say they're now investigating." "The sheriff wants to know if the pictures show bad judgement, a policy problem or a crime."
