In the video, Carey can be heard berating the officers and telling the person filming him to “videotape all of this.” The musician keeps asking one of the officers, “Who did I assault?” and exclaiming, “I just want to get the f*ck out of here.”
At the end of the video, two officers can be seen pushing Carey against a glass wall outside the airport, with one officer ordering Carey not to get too close to them. The officers then slap cuffs around Carey‘s wrists, with one of them telling the drummer to “quit resisting now.”
Law enforcement sources say Carey allegedly assaulted an employee working security at the airport. A police report states that Carey allegedly shoved two fingers in the worker’s chest and repeatedly yelled, “You’re a f*cking f****t!,” TMZ reports.
Carey was booked for misdemeanor assault and was released on bond. The police report is being forwarded to prosecutors for review, and potential charges will follow. He could be hit with a fine for the incident up to $13,900.
A spokesperson for the Kansas City Aviation Department told Rolling Stone magazine: “Regarding the request for body and dash cam video, our police force does not have this technology. The police report has been forwarded to the prosecutor’s office for review.”
