Bone Thugs-n-Harmony's Flesh-n-Bone was reportedly arrested Thursday (April 2) night in California on a weapons charge.
The rapper was taken in by police after a gun was discovered in his vehicle.
Flesh-n-Bone was arrested yesterday evening in Santa Clarita, Calif. for gun possession. Police say they discovered a gun in Flesh-n-Bone's car, real name Stanley Howse, and took him into custody for gun possession. According to sheriff's information, he is being held without bail and is currently still in the slammer. He is due in court on Monday, April 6. (TMZ)
He was reportedly caught after being examined during a traffic stop.
Flesh-n-Bone was arrested for gun possession in Canyon Country on Thursday. During a routine traffic stop at approximately 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Santa Clarita Valley sheriff's deputies discovered a gun in the Howse's car, Lt. Mark Herhsey said. Howse, 35, of Canyon Country, is being held in lieu of $35,000 bail. (The Signal)
The rapper was recently released from prison after serving eight years behind bars.
Howse was sentenced to 11 years in prison in September 2000 for threatening a neighbor with an AK-47 assault rifle. He served at Pleasant Valley State Prison until his release in July 2008. With the group, he won a Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance in 1997 and an American Music Award in 2007. (KHTS News)
The rap group was sued late last year for not performing at a pre-booked venue in Washington.
The Grammy-winning crew have been sued by the Jazz of Tacoma basketball team who claim the crew breached their contract after the money was handed over for an April 2007 performance. "The defendants breached the agreement by failing to show up and perform -- [they] neither canceled the engagement or returned any monies paid under the contract," the lawsuit reads. "The plaintiff has since that time done everything in its power to settle this matter without any good faith response by the defendants." (SOHH)
