Rikki to Miss.

Your Charges Don't Dance

5/23/2008 8:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rikki Rockett says he'll be having nothin' but a good time after being cleared of felony rape charges.

On his MySpace blog, the Poison tubthumper says he has been "exonerated" of the charge after the Neshoba County, Miss. DA declined to indict him because, among other things, he wasn't even in the state when the alleged incident went down. What's more, Rikki claims he was the victim of an impostor named John Minskoff, whom Rik says is a "career criminal" who impersonated him and sexually pursued the alleged victim.

We've contacted Neshoba County officials for comment, but haven't heard back just yet.

"...sexually pursued the"

The what? Does anyone there know how to write? Proofread? Add? Subtract? And write stories that someone might actually care about?

Has-been rocker? That's all you can offer?

I pursued a chick named "The" once. She kicked me in the nuts and told me to get lost.

So what is the "career criminal"'s usual sort of crime? Does he just go around impersonating Rikki so he can get laid?
For some guys that's enough but what about this one.

hello!    

Oh I am so glad! Rikki, I am sorry that you had to be pulled into this ridiculous drama! I have been a HUGE fan of Poison since their first single, and I have never missed a concert. I got the wonderful opportunity to meet them when they toured with Slaughter, Dokken and Cinderella about 5 years ago, and Rikki was very humble, respectful and just a sweet, nice guy. When I read about the rape charges, I didnt believe it. He is still a good looking guy and has a beautiful girlfriend. Why would he want/need to rape some skank?? I guess the girl was just wishful thinkin! CONGRATS RIKKI AND KEEP YOUR HEAD UP!!!! POISON RULES!

hell if he can prove he wasn't in the state then it should be just dropped. I feel sorry for the girl, but at least it wasn't another one of those celebrity saying "it was consensual" deals

#12: Nothing worse than an old rocker trying to pretend he's 21 again. Witness him and that other moron, the aging rocker with the bandana who picks women with an IQ of 12 (to match his): Bret Michaels.

Isn't it time for the stoners to grow up?
