Former Dio Bassist Arrested for DUI and Illegal Possession of Drugs
According to TMZ, former Dio bassist, Jimmy Bain, was arrested for DUI and for illegally possessing prescription medication after a car accident on August 28th.
As stated by police in Burbank, CA, Bain got into a minor accident — in his ’95 Toyota Camry — around 9:30PM, and responding officers suspected he was under the influence of something other than alcohol.
Cops say Bain failed a field sobriety test, and they also found Vicodin pills that were not prescribed to him.
Bain was arrested and booked for misdemeanor DUI and felony possession of prescription medication.
Cops say Bain, a founding member of Dio, also had an outstanding drug warrant. He was released on $60,000 bail.
