Officers from the LAPD's Airport Division seized the 46-year-old former hairdresser and lifeguard (real name: Richard Ream) as he was going through customs on Monday and then transported him to L.A. County Jail.
Officials there booked him on a felony fugitive sexual assault warrant out of Neshoba County, Miss. Information about the warrant and specific charges was not immediately available. Neither were details of Rockett's current whereabouts.
The drummer had been in New Zealand to reunite and perform with other original members of the band at Rock2Wellington, a heavy metal show. He formed the group in the '80s with high school pal Bret Michaels.
