Bone Thugs-N-Harmony member Krayzie Bone is owning up to making headlines yesterday (July 27) after getting arrested on a drunk driving charge in Los Angeles and said he has learned his lesson.
Rather than make up excuses, Krayzie acknowledged not taking more precaution after getting a few drinks into his system.
Krayzie tells us, "I was just riding home late and got into a little trouble with the law. It is what it is. It happens sometimes. I'm cool now. I'm going home." He added, "First time it has ever happened to me. So lesson learned." We asked if he'd be sure to get a driver next time. Bone responded, "Yeah, that's the best thing to do." (TMZ)
He also hopped on Twitter to defend his image in light of the arrest reports.
"They said I was riding dirty but I was simply tryna make it home after a hard day in the studio!," he tweeted Saturday (July 28). (Krayzie Bone's Twitter)
