David Crosby Arrested

David Crosby arrested on drug, gun charges

Musician David Crosby was arrested on marijuana and gun possession charges early Saturday at a Times Square hotel, police said.

Crosby, 62, a two-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, had checked out of the hotel but left a piece of luggage behind, police said.

A hotel worker found the bag and went through it looking for identification, and called police after finding marijuana, a .45-caliber handgun and two knives, authorities said.

Crosby was met by police when he returned to pick up the bag, investigators said.

I am truly shocked. Who would ever have suspected such conduct from David Crosby?

    Who would need two knives when you have a .45 caliber handgun?

  2. McGehee says:

    Something tells me ol’ Dave’s aim is probably not what it could be. The knives were in case being shot at (and missed) six times wasn’t enough to divert whoever he thought was going to attack him.

  3. Aaron Haspel says:

    Never mind the two knives. The real question is, how do you get inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice?

  4. Neal Smith says:

    Perhaps Dave’s second liver is acting up.

  5. Neil Young says:

    Give the man a break. Drugs are a vice some folks never get over, I know they can be a real fight. Walk a mile in David’s shoe’s and then run your mouth’s.

    I stand behind my pal and always will. We all have our demons. Thanks Neil for turning me on to this site and let me know about Sat. S.S.

    Well I’ll jump in with both feet. I hate it when people who know nothing about a matter, start running down a bloke they know only by media reporting. Our friend David has been fighting health and personal problems for thirty years and I for one am extreamly proud of his acomplishment in these areas of his life. Fan or not, Dave need your prayers now, not hateful remarks.

  9. I am outraged. Outraged!
