On this date in 1976, Rocker Jerry Lee Lewis was arrested outside Graceland in Memphis for public drunkenness and waving a pistol and demanding to see "The King."

 

The guard at the gate called the police and there was some talk that Elvis watched the arrest go down on his closed circuit monitors in the house, 37 years ago today.

 

Jerry, that's almost as classy as when you married your 13 year old cousin, once removed. Goodness gracious, great balls of fire.
