Guns N’ Roses drummer released from jailJuly 20th, 2008 - 1:10 pm ICT by IANS
London , July 20 (IANS) Former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler has been released on bail after he was arrested in Los Angeles for possession of narcotics and for appearing to be under the influence of drugs. The rocker, who also had an outstanding warrant at the time of his arrest, was detained by cops Friday morning after emergency services were called to a house in Hollywood following a reported disturbance. Adler was released later that day after paying $45,000 bail, reports contactmusic.com.
The outstanding warrant for Adler’s arrest stemmed from a 2005 case in which he was charged for being under the influence of a controlled substance and driving on a suspended licence. The document was issued after he skipped a subsequent court date in April 2006.
Adler, 43, has endured a long and public battle with drugs and alcohol - he recently appeared on US TV show “Celebrity Rehab” and was scheduled to appear in its spin-off “Sober Living”.
