John Popper, the lead singer of Blues Traveler best known for
the hit single “Runaround” being fat and playing the harmonica, was arrested yesterday after the vehicle he was riding in was clocked going 111 mph in Spokane, Washington. Of course, like any good rock star, that’s just the beginning:
Inside the black Mercedes SUV, officers found a cache of weapons and a small amount of marijuana, the Patrol said. A police dog searched the vehicle, finding numerous hidden compartments containing four rifles, nine handguns and a switchblade knife. Authorities also found a Taser and night vision goggles. The vehicle was seized.
Now that’s how you get pulled over in style. To see a picture of John’s WWIII-style aresenal, click here. Mr. Popper has always seemed like a good guy, so we here at BWE wish him nothing but the best as he goes through these trying times. We know he’ll persevere. After all, I believe it was John himself who said, “Everything falls apart/ then I get to try to put it back together.”
Wait… that was Dog’s Eye View, wasn’t it? Nevermind.
