The way this went down is that Jim Morrison and his some times mistress (Patricia Kennealy) were backstage at the New Haven Arena the night of this concert, making out. A New Haven cop a patrolman catches them in a closet making out and I guess doesn’t recognize Jim Morrison and certainly not Pat Kennealy and orders them both out. Morrison tells the officer that they’re doing nothing wrong and the cop shouldn’t worry about it and I’m paraphrasing. The cop is not satisfied with that and orders them out again. Morrison once again refuses and the cop gets physical and pushes Morrison and Morrison pushes back the cop sprays Morrison and gets him out of the closet. This is all going down literally moments before this concert started. And Morrison ends up going out on stage with this spray in his eyes. The concert starts out normally, but then Morrison after one song goes silent and instead starts talking and cursing about the cops and explains his side of the story of what happened to him and his part-time girlfriend. The New Have cops have enough of that, interrupt the concert and arrest Jim Morrison on stage and remove him during the middle of the concert.
