Ol' Dirty Bastard has been arrested yet again for making terrorist threats.
The Wu-Tang Clan rapper, who also goes by the names Big Baby Jesus and Russell Jones, was arrested and booked on Thursday at 1 p.m. in Carson, California. Sheriff's deputies apprehended Dirty after his 27-year-old ex-girlfriend and mother of his one-year old child reported on Monday that he had allegedly threatened to kill her. On Thursday afternoon, she called police once again to tell them that he was en route to her job location. According to police reports, Dirty was apprehended while attempting to climb over the security gate to enter her job site.
After being booked, the rapper was then transferred to the Twin Towers Correctional Facility because of his notoriety and increased bail, which is set at $500,000 instead of the standard $50,000. As previously reported by MTV News, Dirty has another on-going case involving a previous terrorist threat charge. He is expected to appear in Beverly Hills
Municipal Court on November 17 for allegedly threatening to shoot the West Hollywood House of Blues security staff after being ejected from the club in September (see "Ol' Dirty Bastard Out On Bail After Hollywood Club Arrest" ). He also faces shoplifting charges in Virginia Beach, Virginia over a $50 pair of Nike sneakers.
A spokesperson at Twin Towers says that Dirty's bail has been posted, but that he has not yet been released as of Friday afternoon. The spokesperson adds that he could be held for up to 72 hours before being released.
A spokesperson at Dirty's label, Elektra Records, had no comment at press time.
