A rep for Bone Thugs-n-Harmony‘s Stanley “Flesh-n-Bone” Howse has released a statement to SOHH confirming the rapper’s arrest last week on gun charges, assuring fans that all the details have yet to be disclosed.
An official representative for the group claims the rapper should not be labeled guilty until all the facts have been brought forward.
“At this time all the facts have not been revealed publicly, however I can assure you 100 percent that Mr. Howse has not walked backwards,” the rep wrote. “We live in a great American country where one is innocent until proven guilty.” (Statement)
