Slick arrested

Former Jefferson Starship lead singer Grace Slick, 54, was arrested Saturday in Tiburon, Calif., for allegedly aiming a gun at police who had come to her house and ordering them to leave. Officers from the Tiburon Police Department went to the singer's home after receiving a call at 3:30 a.m. from an intoxicated man. When officers arrived, 58-year-old Ira Lee came to the door yelling "kill me." Officers subdued him. Slick then came to the door carrying a shotgun, pointed it at the officers and yelled at them to leave her property. An officer wrestled the gun away from her when her attention was diverted. Marin County Jail officials said Slick was charged with felony assault and felony brandishing a weapon at a policeman. She posted $7,000 bail and was taken to Marin General Hospital for evaluation.
