Same Ol’ Dirty Bastard Song And Dance: Rapper Arrested Again

Ol’ Dirty Bastard capped a legal nightmare of a week on Friday by being arrested in New York City for the second time in five days.

Police pulled ODB over in Harlem on approximately 7:30 p.m. on Friday because the car he was driving didn’t appear to have a license plate, according to the Associated Press. During the traffic stop, officers discovered that Ol’ Dirty was driving on a suspended license.

The recent run-in with authorities comes less than four days after ODB was arrested in Brooklyn, New York after police discovered crack cocaine in the rapper’s car during another routine traffic stop (see “Ol’ Dirty Bastard Arrested; Police Claim To Have Found Crack In Rapper’s Car” ).

ODB was eventually released on bail after being charged with misdemeanor drug possession and for driving on a suspended license. On Wednesday, the rapper avoided a bench warrant by showing up in a Los Angeles court a day late for a preliminary hearing
related to still another arrest last month (see “Ol’ Dirty Bastard Arrested For Wearing Bulletproof Vest” ).
