The Seattle Times reports that police arrested Dean Stuart Wetter, husband of Heart singer Ann Wilson, late on Sunday night after Wetter allegedly attacked two unnamed young male relatives during Heart’s show at Seattle’s White River Amphitheater. According to the police report, Wetter was angry that the two relatives walked off of Heart’s tour bus and left the door open. Wetter allegedly punched one of them in the back of the head with a closed fist and grabbed both of them by the throat.
According to the probable-cause documents from the arrest, the two boys were watching the show from the side of the stage and then wandered around backstage. Wetter was outside the Heart tour bus, and the two boys asked if they could see the inside of it. Wetter said that they could but that they should be careful of the dogs inside. When the two boys left the tour bus without closing the door, that’s when Wetter attacked. One of the boys claimed to be suffering “a sore, raspy throat, fear of dying, and pain in his throat area.” Police arrested Wetter very early yesterday morning.
The 65-year-old Wetter married Wilson, also 65, last year, though they’d also dated during the ’80s. Wilson remains on tour with Heart.
