According to, the drummer for musician TED NUGENT was not at the Penobscot Judicial Center on Wednesday, but his lawyer was.

Bangor attorney Richard Hartley entered not guilty pleas on behalf of his client, Mick Brown, 55, to charges of operating under the influence of intoxicants, driving to endanger, theft and assault.

Brown, 55, was arrested by Bangor police on Sunday, July 8, after he allegedly stole a golf cart used by Waterfront Concerts staff and was drunkenly driving it around the Front Street area at about 9:45 p.m.

Brown remains free on $4,000 bail. His next court date has not been scheduled, according to the court clerk’s office.

Bangor police Officers Steve Jordan and Jim Dearing were working at the waterfront pavilion during the July 8 show featuring Styx, REO Speedwagon and Nugent when security alerted them to an incident behind the stage, according to a news release from police Sgt. Paul Edwards issued on July 9.
