Update 2022: Singer Weird Al Arrested And Charges
Weird Al was detained in July 2022 at his home in the Los Angeles region, marking a stunning new step in Robert Mueller's special counsel inquiry. The famous musician's representative said he is suspected of assisting numerous people involved in the ongoing Russia inquiry through the polka aid.
The FBI and RIAA raided his residence to find 27 accordions, song lyrics, and recordings that could be relevant to the Mueller investigation. Al is accused of violating USC Section 18, a significant law prohibiting aiding and abetting the musical tastes of foreign entities. The clause was included in the Patriot Act, which was approved in 2001 and later reaffirmed. The raid took place on July 10th, 2022.
Weird Al was granted bail and stated that when the police knocked on his door, he was just as astonished as everyone else. After his release from a federal prison facility in downtown Los Angeles, he talked with the media about his experience.
