Keith Richards must be so relieved: his dramatic 30-year-plus battle with the state of Arkansas finally came to a close. Back in 1975, Richards was arrested in Fordyce, Arkansas, while traveling from Memphis to Dallas and pleeded guilty to charges of reckless driving. He paid the fine. But since then the lingering horror of his besmirched reputation has positively haunted Richards. And Governor Mike Huckabee has proven he has a heart by submitting an application for clemency on behalf of the rocker, who was then pardoned by the state's Parole Board. Congrats, Keef.
