It appears that prosecutors have dismissed the assault charges brought against TOOL drummer Danny Carey
According to FOX4 News Kansas City, no reason was given for the dismissal of said charges, with the court only saying the case is a closed confidential matter.
This comes more than a year after Carey was arrested on December 12, 2021 due to an alleged assault at Kansas City International Airport. TMZ posted a video of the incident which showed Carey verbally berating security officers and telling the person filming him to “videotape all of this.” The drummer kept asking one of the officers, “Who did I assault?” and exclaiming, “I just want to get the fuck out of here.” The two officers could then be seen pushing Carey against a wall outside the airport, before putting him in handcuffs.
According to TMZ, law enforcement said that Carey allegedly assaulted an employee working security at the airport.
A spokesperson for the Kansas City Aviation Department told Rolling Stone at the time: “Regarding the request for body and dash cam video, our police force does not have this technology. The police report has been forwarded to the prosecutor’s office for review.”
