Rapper Tone Loc Arrested Amid Accusations of Domestic Violence

29 Jun

Rapper Tone Loc was arrested this past weekend on suspicion of felony domestic violence, following an alleged physical altercation with the mother of one of his children (his baby mama).

The 45-year-old Los Angeles MC (born Anthony Terrell Smith), best known for his late 1980s rap hits “Wild Thing” and “Funky Cold Medina,” was arrested around 2:45 p.m. on Saturday at an apartment complex in Burbank, California, according to TMZ.

According to UrbanMecca, he posted $50,000 bail and was released from jail after three hours.

Police did not reveal who the alleged victim in the incident was.

Best known for his gravelly voice and laid-back attitude, Loc’s two best-selling singles came from his 1989 debut, Loc-ed After Dark, which was followed by the less-successful 1991 disc Cool Hand Loc. After his music career cooled off, the rapper used his unmistakable voice to launch a second career as a voice-over star and sometime movie actor, appearing in films such as “The Adventures of Ford Fairlane” and “Posse.”
