December 9, 1967

On this day in 1967, Jim Morrison was arrested during his concert in New Haven, Connecticut, after a police officer found him backstage with a young girl and sprayed mace at him. An angry Morrison took the stage and went on a rant about the incident during “Back Door Man,” at which point three cops arrest him, marking the first time a musician was arrested mid-performance.
