Former Lynyrd Skynyrd drummer arrested in NC

ASHEVILLE -- A former drummer for rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd has been arrested for not properly registering as a sex offender in North Carolina. Investigators say Artimus Pyle had moved to Asheville but never registered. He posted a $10,000 bond earlier this week. The 59-year-old pleaded guilty in 1993 on charges including attempted capital sexual battery by an adult on a victim younger than 12. He was sentenced to eight years of probation and designated as a sex offender.
