The Misfits - Former Misfits Star Michale Graves Arrested

Former Misfits frontman Michale Graves missed a show in Texas on Tuesday night (24Jul12) after he was arrested on suspicion of possessing drugs.
The rocker is currently on a solo tour of the U.S. but his gigs came to a halt when he was stopped at a border checkpoint in Kennedy County, Texas on Monday (23Jul12).
Graves was taken into custody by the Kingsville Sheriff's department and charged with a misdemeanour count of marijuana possession. He was held overnight and subsequently missed a planned show in El Paso.
The star was released on Tuesday (24Jul12) after posting a $750 (£469) bail bond.
He broke the news to fans in a post on his Twitter.com page, writing, "Hey everyone, sorry to inform you that we will not be playing in El Paso, TX... We came across some issues..."
A subsequent post on Graves' Facebook.com page explained the situation, adding, "While passing through a border check point in Kennedy County in the great state of Texas on Monday, July 23rd, Michale Graves was arrested for possession of 6 grams of marijuana. Graves was taken into custody by the Kingsville Sherriff's department and charged with a misdemeanour. He was held overnight missing the El Paso show at Lips Lounge.
"Graves was released Tuesday, the 24th at 4:00pm on a $750 bond. He must return to Texas to answer to the charges. The band has been driving for 20 straight hours to reach tonight's show at the Silverdome in Lukachukai, AZ. He hopes to be able to make up the El Paso show in some way."
