My hometown hero and local celebrity, Henry Lee Summer a.k.a. Henry Swartz, was arrested last night after partying near the Speedway race track in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Henry was pulled over and arrested for not using a turn signal and then throwing a ’substance’ out his window. The substance happened to be a bag meth. Henry is known for his super hit song in 1986 named “I Wish I Had a Girl (Who Walked Like That)”. When I was in a band in Indiana about 5 years ago, Henry had the ‘Henry Lee Summer Band’. We played at some of the same venues and I also associated with his band members. The band members enjoyed the recognition and success of being in his band, but they did NOT enjoy his extreme behavior. A few years ago in 2006, Henry was accused of driving while intoxicated, slamming into several parked cars and fighting with police. Now he’s got an initial court hearing on May 12.
Police reports stated this:
“Indianapolis police said they began pursuing Swartz’s car about midnight Tuesday after officers said he turned onto a road on Indianapolis’ west side without using his turn signal.
According to the affidavit, Swartz slowed down his car but did not stop and then tossed something out of the window as he went around a curve and then came to a halt. An officer used pepper spray to subdue Swartz after police say he resisted arrest.
After officers handcuffed Swartz, one officer returned to the curve and found a box that tests later showed contained about a tenth of a gram of meth.”
