Musician Arrested At Cookeville Concert

A man who was performing as a musician in a show at the Cookeville Performing Arts Center over the weekend ended up being arrested by police on an outstanding warrant from Humphreys County, Tennessee. Police say 47-year-old William Dale Perry of Bristol was performing as part of the backing band for Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver. They say the Humphreys County Sheriff's Department had taken out a warrant against Perry on a domestic assault charge. Local police coordinated with the C-PAC staff to have the band take a brief intermission. Authorities then spoke to Mr. Perry, who allegedly told them that he was aware of the outstanding warrant. He was then taken to the Putnam County jail to await extradition -- and the show apparently continued without him.
