Poison Drummer Released

Poison drummer Rikki Rockett has been arrested and released on a rape warrant in Los Angeles.

Rockett was arrested after arriving at the Los Angeles International Airport March 24th and booked into the Los Angeles County Jail, according to the local Sheriff’s Department Web site.

He was released early the next day.

The artist could face extradition by Mississippi prosecutors, according to police reports, stemming from a complaint filed by a woman who alleges she was raped by Rockett in a hotel room at the Silver Star Casino in Philadelphia, Miss., last September.

Following the arrest, Rockett canceled a show at Rattlesnake Slim’s, a coffeehouse/music venue near his home in Newhall, Calif., TMZ.com reported.
