Super Furry Animals guitarist Huw Bunford was arrested on Mon.
(Jan. 6) for possession drugs, according to the New Musical Express.
While getting busted with four grams of cocaine might seem like doing Oasis'
Liam Gallagher one (or two or three (grams)) better, suffice it to say that
Bunford could have found an easier way to wrest away the "bad boy of English
rock" title from Liam. Ironically, Bunford's arrest came the same day his
Creation Records label mate, the very same Liam Gallagher, was "cautioned" by
police for cocaine possession stemming from his Nov. 9 arrest on a similar
Bunford was arrested after police stopped and searched a car he and
band mate Dafydd Leuan were traveling in on their way to North Wales to work on
some new songs; blow was found in the car. Bunford was questioned and charged
with possession of four grams of cocaine, then released on bail until Feb. 13
when he will appear before a magistrate.
Now, if we understand English law
correctly, big rock stars and first offenders always get off on their maiden
possession charge, so Bunford should have nothing to worry about. Right? All we
can say is, hope it's your first offense, son. FYI: they frown on it when you
pretend to snort something off your wrist after you get cleared of charges.
