Fur Flies With Nugent, Protesters
Aug. 03, 2000
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) _ All charges have been dropped against a man who was arrested after rocker Ted Nugent accused him of assault at an anti-fur protest.
The San Francisco district attorney's office decided Tuesday to release Bhaskar Sinha, 21.
Nugent said Sinha bumped and threatened him Sunday, but a security camera that recorded the incident showed no contact. A charge of threatening Nugent was also dropped because it was too vague.
Nugent came out of a Neiman Marcus store and ran right into an animal rights group's regular protest against the sale of furs. Nugent, an outspoken supporter of guns and hunting, got into an argument with Sinha over his hunting plans.
