ODB Vest Case Continued

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.
