1969: Mick Jagger Documents Allege Frame-Up
The British National Archives has released 500 pages of documents from Mick Jagger's 1969 drug bust at his London apartment. Marianne Faithful was also present. Read Mick's version: The detective planted a small amount of white powder in a Cartier box on the table and then told Mick for $1,000. he could arrange it so Marianne pleaded guilty and he walked.
What makes Mick's story so credible is that the bribe required a guilty plea from Ms. Faithful. Why add that if you're making up a tale? If he were making it up, I think he would have said the detective told him they both would walk.
In the end, the detective was not prosecuted. But...
Several years later, senior detectives of Scotland Yard's drug squad were tried on charges of corruption much like the kind Mr. Jagger described.
