Quantities of marijuana and other controlled substances were discovered Wednesday night (July 21) on two vehicles carrying the former Poison singer, his band and road crew across America for the singer's 'Roses and Thorns' tour.
After a routine stop to check a tail-light in DeKalb County, Ind., police conducted searches of both vehicles where sniffer dogs alerted their handlers to the presence of drugs, reports the News Sentinel. No one was arrested, but charges have been forwarded to DeKalb County Prosecutor's Office.
In a statement reported by WENN, Michaels' publicist said, "No arrests were made. Mr Michaels allowed an open search of the buses and everything was handled in a professional manner."
The incident comes on the back of Michaels' recent much-publicised hospital stays. As previously reported by Spinner, the singer suffered a near-fatal brain haemorrhage in April, while in May he succumbed to a what his doctor referred to as a "warning stroke" which in turn led to the discovery that Michaels has a hole in his heart.
