Smashing Pumpkins Bassist Jailed for Horsing Around

2/10/2011 1:03 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ex-"Smashing Pumpkins" bassist D'arcy Wretzky is currently behind bars in Michigan -- and TMZ has learned, it's all because several horses on her farm broke free ... and ran amok in her town.

Darcy Wretzky Mug Shot
The incident occurred back in 2009.  D'arcy's ex-boyfriend Jeff Khoshaba tells us ... the horses somehow got out of their enclosures. The neighbors flipped out  and called the cops.

We're told D'arcy was ticketed for the crime of  "Animals Running at Large" ... but she forgot to pay, and then missed four consecutive court dates ... triggering a bench warrant for her arrest.

The law finally caught up with D'arcy, who was cuffed on Tuesday. Local law enforcement sources tell us she's being held on four counts of failure to appear in court on the ticket.

She's scheduled to be released on Valentine's Day. How romantic!

None of you know her and attacking someone that way is really low. Something like this could happen to you just as easily, if a bench warrant is put out on you. Not everybody has makeup on 24 hours a day btw, she would look quite different I'm sure. Give her a ****ing break.

Also assuming she has drug problems now in 2011 is pure speculation, you are basing this on something from over 10 years ago, c'mon jeeez!

That sucks man. I loved her bass prowess and sexiness. It's hard to get back to normal after being in a successful rock band. Looks like she has been hitting the Meth pipe a bit; what a shame, she was gorgeous. Good luck star!

This sucks. This shows what the disease could do to truly talented and once attractive woman. I hope one she decides to get help before it is too late.
