From Wikipedia

British rock band The Rolling Stones were arrested at the airport in 1972 after assaulting a photographer, and were brought to the Warwick police station. Their flight could not land in Boston, where the band had a scheduled concert at Boston Garden, due to fog. They were processed quickly to avoid a riot at the Garden

Perhaps some of you remember this incident , The mayor of Boston came to their rescue to avoid a riot at The Boston Garden where they were scheduled to play . Former mayor Kevin White has passed away , here's a story .

The Rolling Stones was arrested for assault and obstruction of police in 1972. The charges were eventually dropped but Mick Jagger was forced to plead guilty before being released. The mugshot taken that night has become legendary, but Mick Jagger wasn't actually the only Rolling Stone arrested that night. Keith Richards, the guitarist from The Rolling Stones, was arrested with Mick Jagger and three other members of the entourage of the legendary band. The five people, including Mick Jagger, were arrested on charges of assault and obstructing police. All five of them were arrested in Warwick, Rhode Island. All five, including Mick Jagger, were arrested because of a scuffle with a photographer and the incident caused a four-hour delay of their concert in Boston that night. All of the charges were dropped but the photo lives on.


<<three other members of the entourage of the legendary band<<
Does anyone knows who these three other persons were ?

Keith was arrested for hitting the photographer.
Mick was arrested for trying to interfere with Keith's arrest.
Marshall Chess was arrested for trying to interfere with that, and Robert Frank was arrested for filming the whole thing.
Stan Moore (a security guy) was also arrested, apparently because the photographer complained about him too.
Bobby Keys really wanted to be arrested as well, as a show of solidarity, but the police didn't oblige him.

Robert Greenfiel witnessed the arrests, and the story is the best part of his book STP,
but he wasn't present at the booking or whatever it's called when they take the photos, so he didn't explain who got to be # 6012.

Thanks for the summary, sssoul. I also remember it as the best part of Greenfield's book. Wonder if it's preserved on film in Frank's vault somewhere. That would be a crazy watch for a Taylor-era Stones freak.
