Big Mike Busted


Mike, former member of The Geto Boys, was arrested

in Arlington Texas, after he became rowdy outside of a night

club. Big Mike, whose real name is Mike Barnett, arrived at

the club around 9:00pm and according to the manager he went

outside to make a phone call. Around 10:00pm, club managers

called police to report a man screaming and stripping in the

parking lot.

“After he made

that call, his personality really changed,” said the manager.

“He wasn’t violent. He was just really upset.”

The manager said

Barnett was trying to take off his clothes and had removed his

shirt and shoes. “He seemed

to be trying to talk spiritually about something and reconcile

with God,” the manager said.

Police officers

said they had to use pepper spray to subdue Barnett, who had

a substance believed to be PCP, a powerful psychedelic drug,

in his possession.

Big Mike now faces

charges of suspicion of assaulting a public servant, possession

of a controlled substance, resisting arrest and failing to identify.

Big Mike also had an outstanding second degree felony arson

warrant from Harris County, and was locked up in lieu of $9,500
