Pot, Gun Charges Vs. David Crosby


(AP) Musician David Crosby was arrested on marijuana and gun 
possession charges early Saturday at a Times Square hotel, police 

Crosby, 62, a two-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, 
had checked out of the hotel but left a piece of luggage behind, police

A hotel worker found the bag and went through it looking for identi-
fication, and called police after finding marijuana, a .45-caliber handgun 
and two knives, authorities said. 

Crosby was met by police when he returned to pick up the bag, in-
vestigators said. 

Crosby, a founding member of both the Byrds and Crosby, Stills, Nash 
and Young, had been performing at the B.B. King Blues Club off Times 
Square and at Shea Auditorium in Wayne, New Jersey. 

In 1985 he was convicted of drug possession in Dallas and spent a 
year in prison before his conviction was overturned on appeal. 

Calls seeking comment from Crosby's management company were 
not immediately returned Saturday.
