"On December 9, 1967 in New Haven, Connecticut. Jim Morrison was booked on charges of indecency, public obscenity, disturbing the peace and resisting arrest. This arrest was portrayed in Oliver Stone’s The Doors movie. Jim had met a girl in his dressing room and wanted a bit more privacy so he went into a shower stall with her. A police officer spotted them in the bathroom and told them they had to leave. Jim told the officer he was in the band and told him to go away. The cop got pushy with Jim, Jim tried to push him away and then the cop maced him. The police wanted to arrest Jim on the spot but were afraid it would incite a riot if the concert was cancelled. During the last song, “Backdoor Man”, Jim told a story about what happened backstage. The cops shut the music down and came directly onstage to arrest him.”
