    Default Has Morrissey ever been arrested?

    I found this in a public records search. I'm not sure what kind of offense it's referring to. Section 537 of the CA penal code has to do with leaving a hotel or restaurant without paying, so perhaps that's all this is...

    P.S Sorry for those abysmal typing errors, there was no light on in here at the time....sorry! But doesn't anyone else remember an incident not too long ago when he was arrested..for something trivial?

    He was detained on entry because he either didn't have his passport, or they didn't believe it. Either way, it had something to do with the U.S.' rampant crusade against terrorism.

    He was detained for several hours in a private cell.

    you mean jail. . .prison is where you go for stays of one year or more.

    plus i think you are talking about the airport incident in whcih he was being detained at the airport. He never was arrested--thus never in jail (and certainly not in prison).

    does the song "At Amber" predate this? if not, maybe we've discovered the basis for this song...

    yup, "at amber" was releasd in late 1990 on the "piccadilly palare" single but was around way before that. it almost appeared in early 89 on the "interesting drug" single as it's former incarnation of "bed took fire".

    Default Right, could be a different SPM

    Or, if he was on tour, maybe someone in his party/working for him inadvertently left an establishment without paying. It could very well be just an oversight -- I wasn't implying anything nasty about Morrissey; I love him!

    Seriously flawed not right in the head. relax. if it is morrissey it's no big deal. I could see morrissey leaving a hotel expecting someone else to pay for it. this was back in 1991 after all. his head was huge then. if he were arrested, doesn't mean he was convicted or anything. this may be fake, this may be real, but i doubt another Steven Patrick Morrissey exists. He probably refused to pay for a meal when he ate half of it and discovered meat in it. besides. . .it could be against Morrissey the company, not the person. meaning a tour related lawsuit. who knows. . .who cares.

    haven't we all been arrested before? ok perhaps not taken to criminal court.

    Mr Stick...
    I entirely agree with you...What does it matter...really...
    I'm sure beyond doubt if he left an hotel/restaurant, whatever without paying there is some discrepancy on the part of the hotel...I mean for goodness sake...it wouldn't be because he couldn't afford to pay the bill...My oh My!!
    I really don't know why this rubbish was posted in the first place.
    (Sorry if I've offended the poster). I disagree with you however, I think it is quite feasible there is more than one Steven (even spelt with a 'v', rather than ph) Morrissey, living in L.A. It's not that an uncommon a name.
    If he is of Irish descent, Patrick is fairly common as a middle name.
    Anyway I love him anyway so who cares....

    R.S.V.P

    But don't feel obliged!
