Vocalist for Bauhaus Arrested for DUI, Hit-and-Run, Possession of Meth

Posted By Attorney Robert M. Bernstein || 1-Apr-2013

Peter Murphy, the vocalist for legendary group Bauhaus, was in jail this week after he was arrested for a Hit-and-Run while Driving Under the Influence in Glendale.

The musician, who was apparently set to launch "The Mr. Moonlight Tour Celebrating 35 Years of Bauhaus," allegedly rear-ended a vehicle in Glendale and fled the scene. A witness followed him and blocked his way until police arrived. Officers also discovered a small bag possibly containing methamphetamine inside a Los Angeles police patrol car, where he had been detained.

Murphy has pled not guilty to three misdemeanor counts of DUI, Hit-and-Run and Possession of Methamphetamine. He is expected to return to court on May 17 for a pretrial hearing.

If you, or someone you know has been charged with Driving Under the Influence, Hit-and-Run, Possession of Methamphetamine of any other type of drug crime, it is important to hire a criminal defense attorney in Los Angeles who knows the law and has the experience to fight the charges against you.
