The Specials' Neville Staple Reportedly Arrested, Strip Searched in JA

According to the Original Rude Boy blog (which is devoted to the musician and his new autobiography of the same title) and the Coventry City FC website, Specials' singer Neville Staple was arrested at Montego Bay airport in Jamaica earlier this week, then strip searched and x-rayed (presumably the authorities were searching for drugs). The police found nothing on (or in!) him, so no charges were filed. Staple is stuck in JA until Saturday and has missed several gigs with the Neville Staple Band as a result of this incident...

At the moment, there doesn't seem to be any additional info about this on-line. Stay tuned.
