Delicious "icing on the cake" - Jim Morrison, who was arrested as many as 6 times!

For the first time the leader of The Doors went to jail in the fall of 1963. He was arrested in Tallahassee right during a football game at the University of Florida! The reason was: petty theft, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and also appearing in a public place in a state of intoxication ... Jim managed to steal an officer's helmet from the open window of a patrol car! Soon the charges were dropped, however, they had to pay a fine.

Morrison's second arrest is familiar to viewers from The Doors. In December 1967, Jim retired with a very young girl in his locker room ... On the same day, the musician hit one of the policemen, who demanded a couple to leave. They did not immediately arrest the rebel - in order to avoid riots due to the cancellation of the concert. It all happened during the performance of the final Backdoor Man…

On the night of January 28, 1968, Morrison was severely beaten by bouncers for smoking a cigarette like it was weed. It all happened in Las Vegas, at the PussyCat club. As a result of the ensuing riots, Jim was again detained ...

Another arrest of Morrison came in September 1970, on charges of indecent behavior (which, in fact, was very characteristic of his character).
