INDIANAPOLIS -- Eighties rocker Henry Lee Summer recently was granted his request to enter a substance abuse rehabilitation program in Tennessee as he awaits trial on charges of drug possession.
The 53-year-old Summer, whose real name is Henry Swartz, was arrested in Indianapolis in May after allegedly threw drugs from his vehicle during a traffic stop.
Officers who tried to stop him for not using a turn signal said they had to use pepper spray to subdue the musician.
He had pleaded not guilty to a felony count of methamphetamine possession, one count of obstruction of justice and two counts of resisting law enforcement.
A motion to admit Summer to a rehab program was approved Tuesday by Indianapolis Judge Jose Salinas.
The singer had two top 20 hits in the 1980s with "I Wish I Had A Girl (Who Walked Like That), and "Hey Baby."
Since his initial success, he has continued to tour.
In 2007, Summer pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated as part of a negotiated plea agreement for his alleged involvement in a 2006 incident.
On Sept. 15, 2006, witnesses at Country Woods Estates reported Summer hit four parked cars and police confirmed they used a Taser gun to subdue him during the arrest.
He was initially charged with driving while intoxicated, resisting law enforcement and leaving the scene of an accident.
