ODB Back To Jail - 7/29/99
The Wu-Tang Clan's pillar of maturity and wisdom, Ol' Dirty Bastard, has been locked up again, this time in Los Angeles, CA, for violating the conditions of his parole.
"for threatening the escort and for coming back with a bottle of alcohol in his pants," said Queens Assistant District Attorney Kenneth Holder in a recent edition of News day.
At his original hearing, the judge told him that if he broke his three-year parole agreement he would be sent back to jail. He now faces another hearing on Friday, February 25, wherein the judge has said she will possibly be going for a prison sentence.
As a result of his latest incarceration, ODB has been unable to attend some recent court appearances, including one in Queens for his July arrest for possession of a controlled substance, when cops pulled him over with marijuana and crack vials in his car.
ODB was originally going to enter a plea bargain with the District Attorney's office, but, as a result of his behavior, Holder said the deal is off the table.
A bench warrant was also issued for ODB after he missed a court date in Brooklyn, NY last Wednesday. According to his lawyer, Peter Frankel, his client's absence and recent behavior is due to stress resulting from the recent deaths of his grandmother and his aunt.
