Broken Social Scene arrested, Suing NYC Cops

“Shortly after Broken Social Scene took the stage on Saturday at the Pitchfork-curated Intonation Music Festival, singer Kevin Drew announced to the audience: “We just decided 20 minutes into arriving in New York that it would be a good idea if we went and bought marijuana. And Dave preceded to get the shit kicked out of him by four policemen, ladies and gentlemen! He got thrown in jail for 24 hours!” And then, amid the jeers, came the kicker: “And now the Broken Social Scene is suing the cops of New York City!”” [Pitchfork]

In case you haven’t been following along, Broken Social Scene were in NYC opening for Dinosaur Jr @ Summerstage last week. That’s where they first related the arrest story from earlier that day. News started spreading that evening via blogs. The above Pitchfork story is the final word on the story.
