[artist id="400124"]Nate Dogg[/artist] doesn't have to worry about the law for now. According to The Associated Press, California police have dropped charges that the rap singer was stalking and threatening his estranged wife.
Nate Dogg (real name: Nathaniel Dwayne Hale) was cleared because prosecutors had not hear from the woman, E! Online reports.
Last summer, Nate was arrested after allegedly chasing his wife's car on a California freeway. He was also accused of sending threatening e-mails to the woman. The former Death Row artist's troubles with the law came as a surprise to everyone after the severe stroke he suffered in late 2007 that left him paralyzed on the left side of his body. He was described as having "neural-muscular issues that have to be jump-started."
"Time will tell everything, obviously," his manager Rod McGrew told MTV News at the time. "The doctor can only guess what the outcome will be. But based on situations with similar people his age, and based on his health, the prognosis is good right now."
In September 2008, while on the road to recovery, Nate had a second stroke but was listed in stable condition.
Nate's health and legal issues have stalled the career of the man who had been hip-hop's go-to R&B singer before anyone had heard of T-Pain, Akon, Ne-Yo and The-Dream. He performed choruses for 50 Cent, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre and a slew of others during the '90s and into the new millennium.
Nate Dogg's manager could not be reached at press time.
