The 'Wild Thing' rapper, who was arrested in June following a domestic violence incident, has pleaded not guilty to two charges, including possession of an assault weapon.
Tone Loc is claiming innocence in his domestic violence case. The rapper, who is famous for his hit singles "Wild Thing" and "Funky Cold Medina", has pleaded not guilty to felony possession of an assault weapon and domestic violence charges stemming from his arrest back in June.
Deputy Dist. Atty. John Allen Ramseyer of the district attorney's Glendale Area Office told the Los Angeles Times that the MC, whose real name is Anthony Smith, entered his plea in Burbank Superior Court on Thursday, July 14. A preliminary hearing has been set for July 28.
45-year-old Loc was busted at an apartment complex in Burbank, California around 2:45 P.M. on June 18 on suspicion of felony domestic violence. He was taken into custody after an incident described as "a physical altercation with the mother of his child."
While investigating the case, officers claimed to have found an unregistered Colt AR-15 Sporter rifle in Loc's possession. The 45-year-old rapper, who also made an appearance in Jim Carrey-starring "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective", was released on $50,000 bail on June 18 evening.
