Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian spoke in an interview with Loudwire and explained how he got arrested with Cliff Burton in London. He said that, cops searching Metallica’s rented apartment in London and then:
“The cops think because we had long hair we must be carrying drugs. Even though we said we’re not, they were like, ‘Well, we could bring you in on suspicion.’
I’m like, ‘It’s good to see that you obviously have nothing better to do.’ That didn’t help, me being snarky.
We get taken in and I get thrown into this concrete cell with just a little tiny window in the door, stripped down to my underwear and it’s freezing cold.
The captain starts apologizing to us. I’m like, ‘Wait a minute, so we’re okay here? Everything’s fine?’ And then I lost my mind, I start screaming at this guy for like three minutes. ‘I’m getting a lawyer!’“
