While passing through a border check point in Kennedy County in the great state of Texas on Monday, July 23, former MISFITS frontman Michale Graves was arrested for possession of 6 grams of marijuana. Graves was taken into custody by the Kingsville Sheriff’s department and charged with a misdemeanor. He was held overnight, missing the El Paso show at Lips Lounge on Tuesday.
Graves was released Tuesday, July 24 at 4:00 p.m. on a $750 bond. He must return to Texas to answer to the charges. The band drove for 20 straight hours to reach tonight’s (Wednesday, July 25) show at the Silverdome in Lukachukai, Arizona. He hopes to be able to make up the El Paso concert in some way.
Michale Graves is currently on the “War Of Information” summer U.S. tour. This is his first full band tour in five years.
Graves will enter the studio this fall to record his new studio album, “War Of Information”, to be released in the spring of 2013.
