HARRODSBURG, Ky. -- Police in Kentucky have a warrant for the arrest of former Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart stemming from an alleged assault after a recent show.

Harrodsburg Police Lt. Chad Powell told The Associated Press on Thursday that the warrant stems from an incident Saturday after a performance by the Mickey Hart Band at Terrapin Hill Farm in Harrodsburg.

In an email from his publicist, Hart says he is "totally baffled" by the assault claim and says it is completely false and without any basis.

Powell says that the investigation is ongoing and that the paperwork could not be released. Mercer County Attorney Ted Dean was in court Thursday morning and did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

Details of the incident, first reported by TMZ, remain unclear. Hart played with the Grateful Dead from 1967 until 1995.
