Assault Charges Against Tool Drummer Danny Carey Have Been Dropped
Tool drummer Danny Carey is no longer facing assault charges relating to an incident that occurred in late 2021. As Fox 4 Kansas City reports, prosecutors have dismissed all charges against the 61-year-old musician following a scheduled court date last month.
The charges against Carey stemmed from an incident at the Kansas City International Airport in December 2021. No reason for the dismissal has been given by the court, with Fox‘s report noting that as of 23rd January, the case is a “closed confidential matter”.

Police were called to the airport to find Carey arguing with an airport security worker. Carey had been accused of intentionally inflicting injury against the man. He allegedly called him a homophobic slur while jabbing him in the chest repeatedly.
Footage of Carey’s arrest was made public and showed the drummer disputing the charges against him. “You’re arresting me for assault,” he said to an officer, “Who did I assault?” He attempted to exert influence by telling those in attendance, “I’m the drummer in Tool”.
Carey was briefly held by police before but was released shortly after being booked. At the time of his arrest, no charges had been filed, though he was reportedly facing a fine of $13,900 for the disturbance.
