Published Mar 29, 2010Grammy-winning hip-hop collective Bone Thugs-N-Harmony were playing a sold-out show in Cleveland, OH last night (March 28) when the concert was interrupted by the sudden entrance of 50 police officers and Cuyahoga County Sheriff's deputies looking to take group member Flesh-N-Bone into custody.
As Cleveland.com reports [via The Daily Swarm], the rapper - whose birth name is Stanley Howse - was officially arrested shortly after police entered the venue. According to a police officer at the scene, Howse had several outstanding warrants, and was going to jail for the night.
Neither the officer nor the band's manager, Josh Williams, would specify the charges.
The same officer explained that so many law enforcement officials were dispatched because of the crowd's size and to ensure that nobody was hurt during the incident.
Bone Thugs-N-Harmony were playing just the third stop of a 30-plus show tour across the United States. The group are touring to support the group's forthcoming eighth studio LP, Uni5: The World's Enemy, which has a tentative release date of May 4.
