Wu-Tang's Ghostface Killah Arrested On Weapons Charge

December 11 [7:55 EDT] -- The Wu-Tang Clan's Ghostface Killah was arrested and jailed Tuesday night in New York City for weapons possession.

Ghostface, whose real name is Dennis Cole, was in one of three cars riding through Harlem when one of the cars with him was pulled over for a traffic violation.

Police say Ghostface got out of his car and became verbally abusive. Police also say that since Ghostface was wearing a bulletproof vest they had probable cause to search both him and his car, where they found a handgun.

In other legal troubles for Ghostface, the rapper also missed a hearing last week on a 1995 warrant for robbery.
