Tool Danny Carey Arrest

Tool drummer Danny Carey was arrested on Sunday night (December 12th) for an alleged assault that took place at the airport in Kansas City, Missouri. According to TMZ, Carey apparently got into a physical altercation with another person inside of the terminal.

Carey was in his home state of Kansas this past weekend to play drums in the stands with the University of Kansas band during the school’s home basketball game against the University of Missouri.

TMZ cites sources as revealing that police were called regarding a disturbance involving Carey and another man. The drummer was then taken to a nearby police station and booked for misdemeanor assault. At the station, Carey was photographed for a mugshot (seen in the tweet below), and eventually released on bond.

Officers told TMZ that a police report is being forwarded to prosecutors for review, at which time potential charges may follow.

Update: TMZ has posted video of Carey’s arrest, and it shows him getting into it with the officers. In addition, TMZ has updated its story with new information from sources claiming that Carey got into an altercation with an employee working airport security. The drummer could face a fine up to $13,900 for the incident. Watch the arrest video here.

Carey’s arrest comes one month before Tool are set to launch their 2022 US tour. The outing kicks off January 10th in Eugene, Oregon, with tickets available here.
