August 22, 1972
Not a great day in Jefferson Airplane history. First police receive a bomb threat before their show in Akron, Ohio. The heavy pig presence incenses the crowd, who throw rocks at a police car. The cops respond by using tear gas, which causes Airplane bassist Jack Casady to denounce them from the stage. He's arrested. Singer Grace Slick and guitarist Paul Kantner give chase after Casady is taken to the venue's basement and, after an exchange, Slick is maced in the face and Kantner is knocked to the floor by overzealous cops.
Arrest on a felony pot possession charge. Bowie, 29 at the time, was nabbed along with Iggy Pop and two other codefendants at a Rochester hotel following a Saturday concert. Bowie was held in the Monroe County jail for a few hours before being released. The Rochester Police Department mug shot was taken three days after Bowie's arrest.
