Hoosier Rock Singer Arrested on Meth Charges

June 18, 2010 Updated May 8, 2009 at 6:49 AM EDT

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Late-1980s pop artist Henry Lee Summer has
been arrested in Indianapolis on methamphetamine possession and
other charges.

Summer was arrested Tuesday after police say he threw drugs from his car during a traffic stop. Officers who tried to pull him over
for not using a turn signal say they needed pepper spray to subdue
the singer, whose real name is Henry Lee Swartz.

The 53-year-old scored two Top 20 hits in the late 1980s with
"I Wish I Had a Girl (Who Walked Like That)" and his cover of the
song "Hey Baby."

He faces one count of meth possession, one count of obstruction
of justice and two counts of resisting law enforcement. He was
released Wednesday from the Marion County Jail pending a May 12
hearing.
