Tone-Loc Charged With Having An Assault Rifle

The "Funky Cold Medina" rapper is in big trouble for packing some serious heat

Published July 15, 2011

Tone-Loc, whose real name is Anthony Smith, has been getting a lot of face time lately with the police. For one, he’s recently charged with having an illegal assault weapon, namely a Colt AR-15 Sporter military rifle, TMZ reports.


Why and from where are the obvious questions, although asking, isn’t he kind of mature in age for this kind of legal trouble, is a valid question as well.


At 45 years of age, Smith was just in trouble in June for allegedly beating on his child’s mother. While an investigation is under way into both accusations, Smith has pleaded not guilty to both charges. At the time of the domestic assault charge, he was placed on lockdown for $50,000. He wasn’t allowed to leave until the fee was paid.


This time around, everyone will have to wait and see what happens.
