Ex-Smashing Pumpkins Bassist Jailed For Wild Horses

Former Smashing Pumpkins bassist D'arcy Wretzky has been arrested in connection to an incident occurring in Michigan, where a number of her horses broke free from their pen and ran about town, causing a ruckus. TMZ reported a the occurrence in 2009, where Wretzky's horses busted through their fences, leading her neighbors calling the police. She was ticketed for "Animals Running at Large" but she apparently forgot to pay up. When called in to trial, she managed to miss four consecutive court dates, which led to a bench warrant for her arrest. The bassist was scheduled to be released on Valentine’s Day after a short six-day sentence. Rolling Stone notes that Wretzky left the Pumpkins in 1999 to pursue an acting career with limited success and that she does have a prior arrest in Chicago on drug charges. Here’s an old video of D’arcy in happier times with her former band mates: And be sure to check out The String Quartet Tribute to The Smashing Pumpkins
