1969 – Janis Joplin is arrested for allegedly using obscene language at a concert in Tampa, Fla. When a policeman tried to control the crowd with a bullhorn, she allegedly tells him, “Don’t f*ck with those people! Hey, mister, what’re you so uptight about? Did you buy a $5 ticket?” When she’s requested to tell the audience to sit down, Joplin allegedly replies, “I’m not telling them sh*t.” Charges were later dropped.
