Don Henley Arrested After Eagles Farewell Party


The morning after throwing a farewell party for his band the Eagles at his Los Angeles home, Don Henley is arrested after calling 911 to get treatment for a 16-year-old prostitute who was apparently having a seizure.

The party was a gathering for crew members and associates of the Eagles, which were breaking up. As reported in GQ, Henley called a madam who arranged for the girl, who turned out to be 16 (Henley claims he did not know her age and did not have sex with her). When she showed signs of a seizure the next morning, Henley made the call and medical personnel arrived to find her naked. Hours later, police arrive to arrest Henley, who pleads no contest to contributing to the delinquency of a minor, a misdemeanor that lands him a fine and two years' probation. Henley claims he took the fall for the roadies who supplied the drugs. "I took complete blame for everything," he tells GQ. "I was stupid; I could have flushed everything down the toilet. I didn't want this girl dying in my house." Henley's girlfriend, Maren Jensen, is in Dallas filming the horror movie Deadly Blessing.
