Allman was allegedly arrested for trying to stop a cop from arresting a fan. Regarding the incident he said :-
"I was signing autographs, and this cop had his searchlights shined on everybody, and he says, 'You have to leave the premises right now. You're trespassing,' I walked over and said, 'You can't do this. I'm in the band' And he said, 'You're also trespassing. You'd better take a step back or I'll charge you with opposing an officer.'"
At this point he was arrested and he went on to describe he was treated :-
"They were trying to make an example out of me" he said. "They were constantly playing our music and laughing and saying, 'Sounds like goddamn hippie rock.' One guy said, 'Maybe if I pulled you in and heard your music and it was anything like the Dixie Chicks I'd have let you out of here, you f---in' f---."
In the end, Allman was fined $153, and released 3 hours later.
