As long as there's been music, there have been musicians who get into trouble with the law.
Entries Beginning with F
On September 17, 1972, Faron Young was a featured artist at a country-western music concert in Clarksburg, West Virginia. At some point during the show, Young grabbed a six-year-old girl (whom he accused of spitting on him) and spanked her hard. By the time the girl’s parents could summon law enforcement, Young and his entourage had left the Clarksburg show to attend their next gig. The troupe’s tour bus was stopped on U.S. Highway 50, and Young was taken into custody. He appeared before a justice of the peace in Wood County, and he was fined $24 plus $11 court costs.
