King Khan & BBQ
and tour manager Kristen Klein recently ran into a bit of trouble
as we mentioned yesterday, and speculation as to their offending actions was widespread. Now they've released a statement about the exact details.
"On November 16, 2009 Kristin Klein entered a guilty plea to 2nd degree possession of a controlled substance in Christian County, Kentucky. Ms Klein was driving a rental vehicle that was randomly stopped at a safety checkpoint. Officers located a controlled substance in the cab of the vehicle. Ms Klein was unaware of the contraband and the validity of her license was indeterminable at time of arrest. Under KY law a driver of a vehicle is responsible for its contents. Therefore, Ms Klein entered a guilty plea and is scheduled to appear on April 2, 2010 to provide proof of her valid license.
"King Khan & BBQ Show are driving through the night to make their Los Angeles show at Troubadour tomorrow. Tonight's show in Phoenix is canceled, but all further west coast dates and will to be honored. Kristin Klein is safe with the band and continuing her tenure as tour manager."[via Pitchfork]
