John Popper Arrested, Gives "Blues Traveler" a Whole New Meaning

John Popper Arrested, Gives "Blues Traveler" a Whole New Meaning

Billboard is reporting that John Popper — otherwise known as the big harmonica-playing frontman for Blues Traveler — was arrested in Ritzville, Wash.,when the car he was riding in was clocked at 111 MPH. Popper, 39, wasn't driving, but he was the owner of the car, which reportedly contained a small amount of marijuana and a very large cache of weapons.

The marijuana doesn't surprise me, though you can normally count on stoners to stay under 35 MPH. But the weapons part is just downright weird. According to Billboard:

A police dog searched the vehicle, finding numerous hidden compartments. Inside those compartments were four rifles, nine handguns and a switchblade knife. They also found a Taser and night vision goggles.

That's not very jammy of him, is it? It's I can't wait to hear the details emerge on this one. Let's just hope Popper doesn't give the cops the run around. (Sorry, had to be said.)

weird -- is Blues Travler still together? Maybe he's got a substance prob. or something and is super paranoid... either way, it's very strange -

I think he's a big 2nd amendment guy or something, NRA and all that, but that's a LOT of weaponry--and in hidden compartments, too??? That's kinda scary. :(
