OTD March 1 - Jim Morrison
22 / 58
Elektra Records

1969: A drunken and verbally abusive Jim Morrison allegedly exposes himself during a concert by The Doors in Miami, Florida. Four days later, warrants were issued for his arrest on charges of lewd and lascivious behavior, indecent exposure, open profanity and public drunkenness. In 1970, he would be found guilty of the indecent exposure and profanity charges, while being acquitted of the remaining charges. He was sentenced to eight months of hard labor and a $500 fine and freed on a $50,000 bond while appealing the conviction, but died on July 3, 1971, before the appeal could be heard.
