Carey could face up to 180 days in jail or a fine. His court date is scheduled for mid-January.
As he was arrested outside of the airport, he kept asking “Who did I assault?” and was told, “Don’t start crying.”
The cops later toss him against the wall to cuff him, knocking his hat off and pushing his face against the glass. The 60-year-old musician stumbles while the overzealous cop yells at him to “stop resisting.”
Tool, a heavy metal/alternative band, has won four Grammys and released five albums.
