Not quite sure how we managed to miss this one
, but Bill McKay
, who sings and plays keys in Leftover Salmon
, was arrested at his home on Tuesday morning by Eagle County Sheriff. The musician, who also leads the Bill McKay Band and Double Parked
, is accused of drugging and sexually assaulting a female that he reportedly met after a gig that the former outfit played in Edwards, Colorado, on New Year's Eve. Yesterday, McKay's Leftover bandmate, Drew Emitt, retracted earlier comments
he had made to Colorado Daily's Wendy Kale
, essentially asserting that McKay had been fired from the band. Emmitt made the statements assuming that they were off the record. McKay is currently free on a $15,000 bond and due back in court on Tuesday, January 27. We'll obviously have more on this as this story develops.
