Tone Loc arrested on suspicion of doing the Wild Thing



Tone Loc/publicity photoEighties rapper Tone Loc has been arrested on suspicion of felony domestic violence in Southern California. Would a "Loc should have stuck with just using Funky Cold Medina on the babes" joke be out of place here? Definitely. Okay, forget I even mentioned it.

Burbank police Sgt. Tracy Sanchez says 45-year-old Anthony Smith was arrested Saturday. That’s Tone Loc's real name, but Sanchez could not confirm that the man arrested is Tone Loc. Whaaa? (Smith's birthdate and description in Los Angeles County jail records match those of the rapper, so we feel pretty sure about it.) Smith was being held in a Burbank jail on $50,000 bail. A message left for Smith's agent Sunday was not immediately returned, and police could not say if he had hired an attorney.
