Village People Cop Arrested

Feb. 19 [10:00 EST] — Victor Willis, known to most as the original cop from the 70s disco phenoms Village People, was arrested on Saturday on robbery and drug charges after a woman reported that a man had struck her and robbed her of money and a bracelet.

Police investigating the report searched Willis’ Reno, Nevada hotel room and found the woman┬╣s belongings, as well as 45 grams of rock cocaine.

With U2 paying tribute to the Village People in its new video “Discotheque,” and a film about the band reportedly in the works, there’s been talk of a Village People comeback. We’ll see.
