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.

Ya know... there's going to be time when people are going to look at all these idiots with massive tats all over themselves and LAUGH. Fashion is fleeting... Get some stock now in a company that removes tattoos in Hollywood. They're going to make a mint!

More disturbing than the rape allegation is the fact that Robert needs to take a cold shower after reading about it.

By the way TMZ...you just did a copy and paste from Yahoo News on this. You didn't even write this. Word for word this is exactly the same report from Yahoo News. That is where I first read about this...on Yahoo in the morning! First it takes you by news terms FOREVER to get on this and then you have to copy someone elses work? Yep, your best days are far behind you TMZ.
