Two days after he was arrested for alleged possession of crack cocaine
in New York, a sullen-looking Ol' Dirty Bastard appeared in Los
Angeles Municipal Court Wednesday morning (March 24) on a felony charge
of wearing a bulletproof vest -- it is illegal for convicted felons to
wear body armor under a new California law. The case was continued until
April 19, pursuant to the request of Kevin Barnes, the rapper's lawyer.
That's the same date he's scheduled to appear in Compton, Calif., for a
pre-trial hearing on two separate sets of charges involving terrorist
threats. "I'm innocent," ODB, who wore a blue and white jacket and
matching pants, said after the hearing.
