UPDATE: Vanilla Ice was released on bond after being arrested on home burglary and grand theft charges. 

"This is blown out of proportion and it's a shame good news doesn’t travel this fast," he told local CBS reporters outside the courthouse.

"It's a misunderstanding," his friend Wes Kain added. "Rob is inquiring about the property and is seeking out to purchase the property and some communication wires got crossed. It will all be worked out as soon as lawyers get a hold of it."
