Former Stone Roses singer Ian Brown was remanded on bail in a Manchester courthouse today after pleading not guilty to threatening a British Airways pilot on a flight from Paris.
The British Press Association News reports that Brown is now scheduled for a pre-trial review April 29.
Details of the incident are sketchy, but according to PA News, Brown was returning from a promotional trip to Paris with his new band February 13 when the pilot radioed ahead and alerted the authorities to have Brown detained when they landed. He was charged with violating a public order section that relates to making verbal statements considered to be a threat of violence.
Brown released his new solo album, “Unfinished Monkey Business,” in England last month, his first record since last recording with Stone Roses in 1994. The band broke up in 1996.
