Maybe his under-aged companions like their Dr. Pepper with a touch of Everclear, too.
At about 2 a.m., police said, officers responding to a noise complaint at the La Quinta Inn, 1619 N. Interstate 35, found Creager, 36, participating in a party that involved several hotel rooms attended by “numerous” women younger than 21 years old. Creager, Kenneth Reynolds, 42, and Brent McLennan, 26, were arrested and charged with furnishing alcohol to a minor, a Class A misdemeanor, police said.
Through his manager and agent, Creager said he pled not guilty but declined further comment.
“Roger Creager denies all charges and pled not guilty,” said Matt Peveto of Houston-based Mustang Music Group L.L.C. Reynolds, Creager’s lead guitar player, and McLennan, his merchandise manager, also pled not guilty, Peveto said.
Creager played at Gordo’s on Thursday as part of his “Live Across Texas Tour.” After being released from the Hays County jail on $3,000 bonds, Creager played to a large crowd in College Station as scheduled on Friday, Peveto said.
“He just wants to get this cleared up and put it behind him,” Peveto said.
