Big Mike Busted

Big

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

bail.
