Bone Thugs-N-Harmony‘s Flesh-N-Bone has broken his silence on being arrested last month after allegedly trying to flee from police during an Ohio concert.
Although reports suggest he was wanted for assaulting his mother over a decade ago, Flesh denies the accusations.
“That’s exactly what it is, bullsh*t, some falsified, fabricated, whatever it is,” he said about the claims. “I don’t even remember the situation. It’s just something that was buried away, because even California didn’t know it was on the radar. It was off the radar until somebody found out I was coming to Cleveland and then they went and dug it up out the bottom of the barrel. Because like I [said], California’s system did several checks to see if I had nationwide warrants and I didn’t have – When I was released from prison [in July 2008] I didn’t have warrants, until I went to Cleveland [last week]. So, it’s something that hopefully – It’s just a little ‘nother little bump in the road. It’s nothing. We go through these trials and tribulations. But it’s nothing for us. And it’s nothing to me. It was just another ordeal to have to go through and get cleaned up at the same time so [that] we can keep moving on with this movement.” (Hip Hop DX)
According to initial reports, Flesh was arrested on a domestic violence and felonious assault charge.
Flesh was in jail Monday, a day after he was taken into custody during a show in the group’s hometown of Cleveland. Sheriff’s spokesman John O’Brien says deputies didn’t wait until after the show because Howse seemed to notice them, invited audience members to the stage and tried to slip out. He was arrested backstage. O’Brien says Howse was wanted on domestic violence and felonious assault charges. The rapper is accused of striking his mother with a gun in 1998, leaving a 1-inch gash on her head. (Associated Press)
Reports of the rapper being arrested began to circulate on the Internet late last month.

The arrest also prompted police to shut down the Bone Thugs-N-Harmony concert.
