Former The Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart is wanted by police in the US for allegedly assaulting a fan at a concert.

A warrant has been issued after the drummer was accused of assaulting a spectator at a Mickey Hart Band show on September 8 at Terrapin Hill Farm in Harrodsburg, Kentucky, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Details surrounding the attack are unclear, but the alleged victim reportedly filed a police report and initiated assault charges shortly after the incident. According to local police, it is standard practice to issue a warrant when an alleged victim decides to press charges.

Hart played with The Grateful Dead from September 1967 before leaving in February 1971. He enjoyed a second spell with the band, which lasted from October 1974 to August 1995, when they officially dissolved following the death of band leader Jerry Garcia.

He has continued to work with his former bandmates, first under the moniker The Other Ones, before they changed it to The Dead in 2003. Hart has also had a successful solo career, with his 1991 album Planet Drum spending 26 weeks at the top of the Billboard World Music Chart.
