The Los Angeles police department alleges that Bizzy Bone, real name Byron McCane, was returning from a restaurant to his Universal Hilton hotel room last Monday (January 5) when he was approached by several individuals.
The gang allegedly beat and choked Bizzy during the confrontation, and subsequently took all the rapperâ„¢s jewelry before fleeing the scene, reports AllHipHop.com. IRONICALLY, Police have charged an ANTI-GANG worker named Marlo “Bow Wow” Jones with the assault. According to The Los Angeles Times, the 30-year-old Jones is reputed to be a contract employee for Unity One, an anti-gang organization under the umbrella of the L.A. Bridges II gang rehabilitation program. The group has officially terminated Jonesâ„¢ employment while this case is pending. Police report they are looking for additional female and male suspects that participated in the crime, according to AHH.
Marlo Jones remains in custody with bail set at $1.1 million. 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.
