ODB's Trouble Multiplies - 8/2/99
Get out your Ol' Dirty Bastard arrest score card and take note: The Wu-Tang Clan member was cuffed on Saturday morning in New York after he allegedly ran a red light in his '94 Mercedes Benz.
Ol' Dirty Bastard was pulled over at 2:43 a.m. in Queens Village and arrested by uniformed officers after he failed to produce his driver's license or vehicle registration.
Upon searching ODB's Benz, the officers found twenty bags of what appeared to be crack cocaine, as well as a baggy that seemed to contain marijuana, according to an NYPD spokesperson.
The 105 Precinct charged the rapper with criminal possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of marijuana, aggravated unlicensed operator (driving without a license) and disobeying a red light.
ODB, who was arrested on similar charges in March, was arraigned on Saturday but has yet to be released. He is due back in court on August 13, according to a spokesperson for the Queens County District Attorney's office.
