Back in December 2021, TOOL drummer Danny Carey was arrested at the Kansas City International Airport for allegedly getting into a fight with another man. As reported by FOX 4 KC, Carey will have his first hearing on December 15th after the case was continued (postponed) seven times since the incident.
According to a ticket issued by officers, Carey intentionally inflicted injury when he allegedly yelled a homophobic slur at the victim, saying "You're a f****** f*****" while jabbing the victim in the chest with two fingers. TMZ reported at the time that Carey was facing misdemeanor assault charges and could be fined up to $13,900.
Originally from Kansas, Carey was in the area for the revival of the Kansas-Missouri college basketball showdown, playing drums with the KU Basketball Pep Band at the Missouri vs. Kansas game at Allen Fieldhouse the day before his arrest.
Footage of the incident, as well as Carey drumming with the pep band, can be viewed below.
