|-||The Stones' most infamous drug bust occurred at Redlands, Keith Richards' English estate. Richards was holding a house party with a large number of guests, of whom was Mick Jagger and his girlfriend at the time, Marianne Faithfull. (George Harrison also attended, but left conveniently before the police arrived.) Mick and Keith were arrested after amounts of LSD and other drugs were found in their possession. They were both sentenced with significant jail time, but their charges were dismissed after a newspaper editor published an article condoning the court for issuing unfairly harsh punishments for a relatively minor offense, with an alleged bias against their growing fame. |
