July 29 [16:00 EDT] --Rapper Charles "Wishbone" Scruggs, of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, was arrested at a strip club in the group's home town of Cleveland last week, after a scuffle that arose after Scruggs allegedly slapped a stripper on her buttocks.
According to Scruggs' attorney, the rapper was simply taking in the show when someone in his party slapped the stripper's bottom, and she in turn slapped Scruggs. The rapper then asked management for an apology. When management allegedly refused this request, Scruggs asked them to call police to sort out the situation, which they did by promptly arresting him and the rest of his party.
Scruggs was released on bail after being charged with aggravated disorderly conduct, which carries a maximum penalty of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.
Scruggs' attorney says he's pondering a suit against the club for assault.
Bone Thugs have just released a new double album, "The Art Of War," and are due to start a U.S.
tour in Minneapolis on August 27, with Mary J. Blige, Dru Hill, Aaliyah, and Ginuwine opening up.
