Bizzy Bone, a member of the successful rap group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, was robbed last week in California according to the Los Angeles Times. The newspaper blog claims that the Midwest Rapper was assaulted and choked by several men at his Universal Hilton hotel room before he was robbed of his jewelry.
Authorities have reportedly arrested a man, an anti-gang worker, they believe is responsible for the January 5th crime. Identified as Marlo “Bow Wow” Jones, the man works for Unity One, an anti-gang organization hired by the city of L.A. to help keep peace in the community. Jones is currently being held at the Parker Center Jail and his bail was set at $1.1 million dollars.
Last month, the original five man Bone Thugs-n-Harmony roster reunited after 10 years.
The group is currently working on a summer 2009 release of Uni 5, the follow up to their 2007 gold album Strength & Loyalty.
