Tone Loc Arrested for Domestic Violence
By Christine Fenno Posted Jun 19th 2011 09:35AM
The arrest, one day before Father's Day, stemmed from an alleged physical altercation with the mother of his child. According to TMZ, the 45- year-old West Coast rap star and voice actor was taken in, without incident, and booked at the local jail in a few hours. He is being held on a $50,000 bond.
Earlier this year, Tone Loc had another run-in with the law when he was spotted driving erratically in January and arrested for DUI. He was released on bail claiming a medical condition caused a seizure (the artist has collapsed onstage in seizure in the past).
Though best known for his 1980's hits 'Wild Thing' and 'Funky Cold Medina,' the four-time Grammy nominee with the uniquely gravelly voice has also taken acting roles in films such as 'Ace Ventura: Pet Detective' and TV series such as 'Touched by an Angel.'
Check out Tone Loc in a 1990's TV appearance (he stars opposite Phil Harman in the opening scene of this clip), as he dons a badge to enforce law and order around the offices of 'NewsRadio':
