Cordell Crockettbassist for rock band Ugly Kid Joe, says he was just trying to move when he was arrested for a felony…cops say he was driving a stolen rental van.
According to the Burbank Police Department, Cordell was arrested May 11 and convicted of felony possession of a stolen vehicle. We’re told the cops pulled him over for driving a car that was reported stolen.
Police say Cordell told officers he borrowed a van from a friend to move items around a warehouse … but cops say the van was a rental from Home Depot that was reported stolen after it was n was not delivered as expected.
Cops say Cordell told them he didn’t know the van was stolen…and he wasn’t the one who rented it.
And, there’s this… we’re told Cordell also has an outstanding arrest warrant stemming from a traffic ticket he got for allegedly driving with a suspended license.
Police tell us Cordell is no longer in custody…he has been released and next month is due in court.
We’ve contacted Cordell’s camp… so far, no response.
Our sincere thanks to
