Mickey Hart has responded to the accusation that he assaulted a person at a Mickey Hart Band concert last week, telling TMZ, “I am totally baffled by a bizarre claim of assault by me coming out of Kentucky – the home of Bluegrass and a state I love dearly. Any accusation or claim of assault against me is completely false and without any basis whatsoever. I played drums on ’Shakedown Street,’ but I never expected to be ’The Victim Or The Crime.’”
