In Fort Smith, Ark., Sean Pierce,a 19-year-old man was arrested on April 9, 1992 for wearing a ‘smutty’ T-shirt bearing the name of Van Halen’s current album, “For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge.” The initial letters of the phrase–a criminal charge in old England that was displayed on the pillory of the person being punished–were highlighted on the shirt, and Sean Pierce was charged with violating a 1990 local ordinance banning the public display of obscene material.
He had bought the t-shirt at a VH concert. When the band heard about it, they got ahold of Sean and said they would pay any fines that me may get.
That would never happen in Arkansas today…..
(we’re not sure if this was the shirt he was wearing but it was from that tour)
