Iron Maiden Drummer Nicko McBrain’s Son Arrested for Alleged Burglary
These have not been the best of times for Iron Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain. Earlier this month, the musician’s wife was arrested for allegedly assaulting a man (who may or may not have been Nicko) at the couple’s West Boca, Fla., home, and now McBrain’s son has been arrested for second-degree petit theft.
Boca News Now reports that McBrain’s 20-year-old son Justin was being held on $25,000 bond at press time in the Palm Beach County Jail for allegedly burglarizing a home.
A police spokesperson told the paper the deputies were called to a West Boca estate after the female homeowner reported that Justin knocked on the door and then pushed his way in once it was open.
He then proceeded to rifle through the woman’s purse, taking a half-eaten chocolate bunny, half of an orange, a belly ring, cosmetics and a freezer pack. He apparently ate the half orange, as well. Justin was arrested at the home a short time later.
As for McBrain’s wife, she was arrested for allegedly attempting to stab a man and then throwing logs at him at the McBrains’ Boca Raton home. She is scheduled to face a judge on the matter in early May.
