It's a fair cop: Village People policeman blames "disco"
Victor Willis, the "cop" in Village People, was on the run from the law in California. Well, Victor was caught and has gone up against the beak.
Victor pleaded no contest to charges of possessing cocaine, crack and a loaded gun when stopped by traffic police. And for giving the police a false name and then going on the run for six months. He faces either a spell in rehab or two years in jail when he's sentenced on 1st September.
The cop says he's now sober, for the first time in 25 years, and blames everything on "the excesses of the disco era that many artists like me found difficult to shake almost 30 years later." Still, it's not all bad. Victor's got a book deal and plans to tour as the cop next summer, if he's not in the big house getting bummed in the showers.
