Video of Tool Drummer Danny Carey’s Arrest Surfaces, New Details Available
Video has surfaced of Tool drummer Danny Carey’s arrest on Sunday night, December 12.
The drummer was arrested for misdemeanor assault at Kansas City International Airport in Kansas City, Missouri, following a “disturbance” between Carey and an unidentified man, as first reported by TMZ. He was subsequently released on bail.
Video of the incident, newly obtained by TMZ, shows Carey having a discussion with police outside the airport and asking “who did I assault?” Later, with his back up against the wall, he tells the officers, “I’m the drummer from Tool… I just wanna go home,” before they take his phone and throw it to the ground, turn him around and apply handcuffs.
Carey had allegedly gotten physical with an airport employee, shoving them in the chest with two fingers and shouting, “You’re a f*cking f*ggot!” multiple times,” after which the police were called. He could be facing a fine of up to $13,900.
Carey, who often wears sports jerseys while performing, was born in Lawrence, KS and was wearing a Kansas City Chiefs jersey in the clip. It’s not known whether he attended the Chiefs football game on Sunday, where they beat the Raiders at home, but he had performed with the University of Kansas student band at the Jayhawks’ basketball game vs. Mizzou on Saturday, December 11 (video below).
