An Arizona resident who drums for classic rocker Ted Nugent is facing several charges after police in Bangor, ME, said he was seen driving drunk in a golf cart stolen from a concert venue.

Officers working at Nugent's Sunday night concert were told that 55-year-old Mick Brown, of Cave Creek, was intoxicated, had stolen the cart and was driving it recklessly on a foot path.

Police said that when officers tried to stop the cart, Brown sped past them and shoved a security officer. Two security officers then removed Brown from the cart, and he was arrested.

Brown was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, driving to endanger, theft and assault. He was released on $400,000 bail.
