Patrick Wolf is currently on a North American tour, which was almost brought to an abrupt halt in San Francisco, where he was reportedly arrested on June 8. Wolf made a series of Twitter postings detailing his arrest, which apparently occurred after he spat in a bouncer’s face.
Here’s the full list of tweets from Wolf’s feed:
“Was arrested by san fran police for spitting in a bouncers face in protection of myself. Was almost shot in the face by a policeman. WTF?”
“was told by the policeman ‘take your shitty ass music out of this city and if you ever step off that tour bus you will be ***** ******** ‘”
“feeling very thelma and louise right now.. must sleep… not allowed off the bus or i will be shot by a policeman. this country is insane!!!”
“btw. apparently my spit DEFINITELY contains ‘hiv, swine flu and hepatitis’ that is why my spit is a deadly weapon according to police here!”
Normal service has since been resumed on Wolf’s Twitter page (“I went on a shopping spree in amoeba today and bought an akon cd! this guys music cracks me up so much xp”) so his brush with the law appears to have been brief. The next date on the tour is at the Oriental Theater in Denver, Colorado, on June 12.
