Tommy Lee Surrenders To N.C. Officials

Drummer turned himself in Monday to face charges from a 1997 concert.

Ex-Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee turned himself in to sheriff's deputies in North Carolina on Monday in connection with charges from a 1997 concert in which he was alleged to have incited the crowd to attack a security guard, Reuters reported. During the show at the Greensboro Coliseum, Crüe bass player Nikki Sixx allegedly hurled racial slurs at a security guard, and both men allegedly egged the crowd on to attack the man. Lee was released on a $5,000 secured bond and faces an Oct. 20 court date on felony rioting and misdemeanor assault charges, according to the report. Sixx was arrested in September on the charges and released on bail. Lee left Mötley Crüe earlier this year and will release the debut from his band, Methods of Mayhem, in December.
