On this day in 1993, Kurt Cobain was arrested after Seattle Police responded to a domestic dispute at the home Cobain shared with wife Courtney Love.
Cobain claimed that reports of him choking his wife were false, and that police were called because they were playing music too loudly. Cobain stated that the only argument that took place did so in front of the officers and was over who was going to jail that evening, him or her. Love told police about guns being in the house and they were immediately removed.
Cobain spent three hours in the local police holding cell until things could be cleared up.
