Blues Traveler Frontman John Popper Arrested After Cops Find Weapons Cache, Drugs in His SUV
Thursday, March 08, 2007

E-MAIL STORY PRINTER FRIENDLY VERSION

March 7: A cache of weapons was confiscated during the arrest of Blues Traveler frontman John Popper near Ritzville, Wash.

March 7: A cache of weapons was confiscated during the arrest of Blues Traveler frontman John Popper near Ritzville, Wash.

SPOKANE, Wash. Blues Traveler singer and harmonica player John Popper was arrested after the vehicle he was riding in was clocked going 111 mph, the Washington State Patrol said Wednesday.

Inside the black Mercedes SUV, officers found a cache of weapons and a small amount of marijuana, the Patrol said. A police dog searched the vehicle, finding numerous hidden compartments containing four rifles, nine handguns and a switchblade knife. Authorities also found a Taser and night vision goggles. The vehicle was seized.

Popper, who lives in Snohomish, Wash., is the owner of the vehicle, which was being driven by Brian Gourgeois, 34, of Austin, Texas, said state patrol Trooper Jeff Sevigney. The vehicle also had flashing emergency headlights, a siren and a public address system, the Patrol said.

"Popper indicated to troopers that he had installed these items in his vehicle because (in the event of a natural disaster) he didn't want to be left behind," the Patrol said in a news release. He also told officers he collected weapons, the Patrol said.

The two men were booked administratively into the Adams County jail and released on their own recognizance. Authorities plan to charge them with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Gourgeois will also face a charge of reckless driving, the Patrol said.

Popper did not immediately return an e-mail seeking comment Wednesday night.

Popper achieved fame as a harmonica player and frontman for Blues Traveler. The band won a Grammy award in 1996 for the song "Run-around," which Popper composed.

Popper recently formed a group called The John Popper Project with DJ Logic, which released an album in 2006 and is scheduled to go on the road later this month.

Re: John Popper of Blues Travelers Arrested for Some Weed and...

My uncle wasn't a gang banger either but he sold his bike and bought a gun and shot his wife when she cheated on him for like 3 years. **** happens.. he actually had 6 shots, wanted 5 for her 1 for him, but I guess pulling the trigger felt so good that he used all 6, now he's in jail instead of dead

People are unpredictable.

Re: John Popper of Blues Travelers Arrested for Some Weed and...

It doesn't really bother me, I didn't know him that well, all I know is he loved that bike more than life itself, so if he sold it to get a gun, you best know he meant to do something.

He was a distant uncle, the kind you never see cause the family tree is so far away but yet he's a uncle? IDK if it makes since, lol.. I blame the Flordia Air.

Troof, matrixed that ****.. I actually chuckled too when I heard the story for the 5th time, not chuckled in a rude way, but the "He had 6 shots in the gun, meant to put 5 in her and the last one in himself and take his own life, but he got carried away and shot her all 6 times"
