Motörhead Drummer Arrested For Hotel Incident

Motörhead drummer Mikkey Dee was arrested in Denver early Friday morning after he and two members of the band's entourage caused a commotion at a hotel, during which they apparently tried to break down the door to a room that wasn't theirs.

According to the "Denver Rocky Mountain News," Dee, whose real name is Michael Delaouglou, was taken into custody after he and bus driver David Smith tried to crash in the door of a Boeing 767 captain staying at the Holiday Inn.

The two men then got into it with hotel security and the police when they arrived on the scene. The two were arrested, along with another woman, Patricia Laducer, on charges of disturbing the peace.

Dee was released in time to rejoin Motörhead for the band's show that evening at the Ogden Theater, and Denver authorities have yet to determine what charges, if any, would be brought against the drummer.

Motörhead is currently on the road touring with Nashville Pussy,

and the two bands are scheduled to play the House Of Blues in Chicago on Tuesday night (see "Motörhead Bringing New Album, New Tour").
