Mickey Hart — a longtime drummer for the “Grateful Dead” — says he has NO IDEA why a warrant has been issued for his arrest … telling our sources the assault allegations against him are completely bogus.
We broke the story … Hart has been accused of beating up a person at a Mickey Hart Band concert in Kentucky on Sept. 8.
Now, Hart is lashing back … telling our sources, “I am totally baffled by a bizarre claim of assault by me coming out of Kentucky — the home of Bluegrass and a state I love dearly.”
He adds, “Any accusation or claim of assault against me is completely false and without any basis whatsoever. I played drums on “Shakedown Street,” but I never expected to be “The Victim or the Crime.””
Officials have not revealed the identity of Hart”s accuser — and so far, the details surrounding the alleged attack are unclear.
