REM star charged over plane incident


A guitarist with the US rock band REM has been charged by police after an alleged "air rage" incident on board a flight to the UK.
Peter Buck has been charged with two common assaults on air crew, criminal damage, being drunk on an aircraft and a public order offence following an incident on a British Airways flight.

Peter Buck was one of the founders of REM

The millionaire rock star was arrested at Heathrow Airport on Saturday morning as he got off flight BA 048 from Seattle.

He will appear at Uxbridge Magistrates Court on Monday.

REM are due to play at the South Africa Freedom Day Concert in London's Trafalgar Square on Sunday 29 April in front of Nelson Mandela and a 20,000-strong crowd.

The band is widely regarded as one of the most influential groups of the past two decades and have been an inspiration for a generation of "alternative" rock bands.
