Jackie Wilson
Living up to his nickname “Mr Excitement”, Jackie Wilson whipped a Port Arthur, Texas nightclub crowd into a frenzy on this day, June 25th in 1966. He was arrested for inciting a riot for refusing to finish the show after cops ordered him to stop.
The charges were later dropped to public drunkenness and he was fined $30.
