Published Dec 15, 2008Dizzee Rascal landed in a bit of legal hot water this weekend following an alleged incident involving a baseball bat. According to reports out of the UK, the Mercury Prize-winning Dizzee (real name: Dylan Mills) was arrested in Kent, England late Friday and held on suspicion of possessing an offensive weapon.
BBC News reports Dizzee was brought in after an alleged road rage incident, which involved the rapper approaching another motorist with bat in hand, and presumably not to crack a few homers; he's English after all.
Twenty-four-year-old Dizzee was reportedly released on bail and has to return to a south London police station later in December, police told the BBC.
Dizzee previously had a run-in with the law in 2005 when police found the star carrying pepper spray - a section five firearm in the UK - and was arrested.
Neither Dizzee nor his peeps have commented on this latest "bat probe."
