Image Dicky Barrett of The Mighty Mighty Bosstones earned himself a visit from the police when he tried to visit a friend - well-known sportswriter Bill Simmons - to watch a football game. Apparently a neighbour, upon seeing the musicians tattoos was overwhelmed by fear and called the fuzz which led to seven armed police officers visiting. The situation was eventually resolved, but not before Dicky and his friends spent a few minutes face down in the grass in handcuffs.
