The drummer for '80s hair band Poison was hit with a rape warrant upon returning from New Zealand, E! Online reports. Richard Ream, 46, better known as Rikki Rockett, is accused of sexually assaulting a woman at a Mississippi casino resort where he was staying. Officials arrested him at customs in Los Angeles, and he spent the night behind bars; he was released Tuesday, pending a Mississippi extradition order.
Rockett’s accuser said the incident occurred September 23, and she filed a police report soon after. Rockett, who lives in LA, had been in New Zealand for a metal concert. The former hairdresser from Pennsylvania founded Poison with high school pal Brett Michaels in the mid-'80s, and the band had a string of hit albums.
