Poison's Rikki Rockett

Arrested on Rape Warrant

3/28/2008 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0328_rikki_rockett_fm-1The drummer for everyone's fave 80's hair band, Poison, was arrested Monday on a rape warrant out of Mississippi as he got off a flight from New Zealand at LAX.

46-year-old Rikki Rockett was busted by the Airport Division of the LAPD as he was going through customs. As the LA Daily News first reported, Rockett, a former hairdresser whose real name is Richard Ream, was transported to the L.A. County Jail, where he was booked on a felony fugitive sexual assault warrant out of Neshoba County, Mississippi. Where Rockett is exactly right now we don't know.

Information about the warrant and specific charges was not immediately available.

Rockett and singer Bret Michaels -- high school classmates -- founded Poison together. He was in New Zealand to reunite and perform with other original members of the band at Rock2Wellington, a huge heavy metal show.

These sites are quick to post anything to drag a stars name in the mud but when they are found innocent i notice they dont print that. Rikki was found innocent of all charges last week due to the fact that HE WASNT EVEN IN THE SAME STATE. and this was proven. The guy who supposedly did this gave his name as the same guy who did a similar thing to WhiteSnake in the past. These people seemed to just want to sue someone to get money. It would be nice if sites like this could print the whole truth, before and after, instead of just printing what they want to print.
