Mouthing off


He’s not a rapper, but gun-rights advocate and middle-aged rocker Ted Nugent jawed it up with members of the Coalition to Abolish the Fur Trade Sunday outside the Neiman Marcus store in San Francisco. The Nuge was in town for a show with KISS and encountered the anti-fur crowd the afternoon before the show. The argument ended up with one protester arrested for threatening to attempt to terrorize and a charge of battery. Fur abolishers claimed that Nugent spit on one of their group but the cops who were busy being photographed with the rocker claimed there was no mucus involved.
