Ten Thousand Motels Ray Davies Fails to Testify in Court

NEW ORLEANS - Ray Davies, the longtime lead singer of The Kinks, didn't return to testify against a man who allegedly drove a getaway car for a gunman who robbed Davies' companion and shot the singer in the leg.

Defendant Jerome Barra was released Wednesday after prosecutors dismissed charges. District Attorney Eddie Jordan said the 60-year-old Davies had sent word to prosecutors that he is on tour and unavailable until December.

Barra, 26, was to face trial on charges of armed robbery and principal to aggravated battery in the Jan. 4, 2004, attack.

"We'll see if we can reinstate the charges once the victim is able to return to New Orleans," Jordan said. "But we do need victims in order to prosecute an armed robbery case."

Police said Davies was walking with a woman near the edge of the French Quarter when a car pulled alongside the couple. A passenger jumped from the car with a gun, demanding that Davies' companion give up her purse.

The woman complied, but Davies pursued the robber as he returned to the car. The robber turned and shot Davies once in the leg before getting in the car and fleeing, police said. Davies was treated for a minor gunshot wound.

Davies and his companion gave police the car's license plate number. About two hours later, police arrested Barra at the wheel. The gunman was never identified.

The Kinks, part of the '60s British invasion, had a string of hits including "You Really Got Me" and "Lola."

MrPleasant After the incident (January 2004), Ray had to leave New Orleans in a hurry, and is still dreaming of those Black Hills he's never seen.
