the Glendale News-Press has reported relief for Peter Murphy and his devoted fanbase…back in March, Mr. Murphy was arrested when he crashed into a Mercedes (the driver was not critically injured) and then sped down the Ventura Freeway until police finally caught up to him. after spending 3 days in county jail, he was released and went back to court in the midst of a high-profile U.S. spring tour celebrating 35 years of Bauhaus. the latest reports state that Peter reached a plea deal this week with prosecutors: instead of serving jail time, he received 3 years of probation and was ordered to undergo 45 days of Narcotics Anonymous meetings due to a guilty plea of methamphetamine possession, and 10 days of community service. if the program is successfully completed, the charges will be dropped. good news indeed, since there’s a new album coming out next year (produced by Martin “Youth” Glover of Killing Joke!)…and that will hopefully mean another tour. fingers crossed.
