D'arcy Wretzy, who is best known as the original bassist for The Smashing Pumpkins, has recently been put behind bars. But unlike many of her rock star peers who have found their way into prison through acts of excessive violence or public intoxication and drug abuse, D'arcy has been arrested because her horses got out.
According to what the bassist's ex-boyfriend Jeff Khoshaba told TMZ, the incident took place in 2009 when D'arcy's horses somehow escaped the farm and took off. For some reason the neigh-bours (get it?) weren't exactly thrilled to have horses rampaging through the town and proceeded to call the cops.
But after being charged for Animals Running at Large, D'arcy apparently forgot to pay the fine. And finally, once she missed four consecutive court appearances, the police stopped horsing around (heh) and took her in.
D'arcy was taken into a Michigan jail on Tuesday, February 8th and is planned to be released on February 14th. It seems like wild horses could drag her away!
