Iron Maiden Drummer Nicko McBrain’s Son Arrested for Burglary
With an abundance of palm trees, golf courses and restaurants, the city of Boca Raton, Fla. is best known as a haven for retirees. However, if you’re, say, the son of famous heavy metal drummer, you may find life there a little taxing, and look for other ways to occupy your time – such as crime. Justin McBrain, son of Iron Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain, was picked up by the Palm Beach County Sherriff’s Office on Friday (April 26) for alleged burglary and theft.
According to Boca News Now, the 20-year old McBrain knocked on a West Boca home and, when the homeowner opened the door, pushed his way in. While the woman called the police, he grabbed some items from her purse, including a half-eaten chocolate bunny, some cosmetics, a belly ring, a freezer pack and half an orange, which he ate.
McBrain was arrested shortly thereafter and charged with burglarizing an occupied dwelling and 2nd degree petit theft. At press time, he was being held on $25,000 bond.
This is the second occurence of recent legal troubles for the McBrain family. Two weeks ago, we reported that Nicko’s wife, Rebecca, will appear before a judge in May as a result of an incident in February. She is alleged to have committed domestic battery by attempting to stab a man (who may or may not have been Nicko) in their home and then throwing logs at him.
