    "In each of the cases, which occurred in 1983, Vega had gone to a car dealer or person trying to sell a car and asked for a test drive, Carney said. During the test drive, Vega would pull a gun and steal the car, he said."

    This first arrest got the guy put in jail for three counts of robbery and three counts of kidnapping, because since the people in the car became his hostage, I guess that counts as "kidnapping." While in jail he must've decided to do some real kidnapping.

    "During his time out of jail, Semow said, Vega was involved in an extortion attempt in which he posed as a hit man who threatened to kill his victim unless he was paid off.

    "His victim in the extortion plot was Dr. Nathan H. Roth of San Marino, who managed to escape and call police, Carney said. The Monday hearing involved this case."

    The only thing that seems weird about this is that the first article says he asked for $25,000. If you've got the father of a multimillionaire rock star hostage, would you ask for $25,000? Seems like he was letting `em off easy. This is why I wonder if he knew he had David Lee Roth's dad.

    Here's the L.A. Times article where Roth and the police's accounts are slightly different.

    Hmm...a guy on meth on David's lawn in 2003...could it have been?

    DLR and his tall tales....busted!
    It can't be "Van Halen" without Roth, any more than it can be "Van Halen" without Eddie.

    Regarding the talk of Eddie's meth use ; was this ever proven or admitted to by EVH ?

    LOL
    It would've happened by now IMO .

    I think the guys (other than Wolf) know that this could be the last kick at the can .
    This lineup will continue until the band officially retires ...

    No, but he has never denied it either, now has he?
    He certainly showed some classic signs of meth use, and it's hard to hide your use.
    This article claims "meth use", but I don't know how accurate it is.

    It says that he became addicted to meth via his cocaine use, because meth is often used to "cut" cocaine.

    Maybe it was bath salts?

    The only good that could come out of that, would be if Eddie had eaten Sammy Hagar's face off...

    Chapter 10:

    I had thought being drunk during shows, beating on plane windows, kicking the roadies, and setting
    my cat on fire, would be the worst of it.

    That was, until Eddie began experimenting with a new drug, that resulted in me receiving a full face
    transplant.
    It was a line i never thought my former buddy would cross...


    Seriously, Crystal Meth seems like such a "ghetto/low level" drug, for a millionaire rockstar.
