A Grammy-winning rapper was arrested Thursday night in Canyon Country for a couple of serious parole violations.
Sgt. Gary Parker of the Santa Clarita Valley Station told KHTS that Stanley Howse was taken into custody after being stopped for a defective brake light.
Howse, better known as Flesh-N-Bone from the rap group Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, is on parole and was found in possession of a firearm and narcotics.
Howse was sentenced to 11 years in prison in September 2000 for threatening a neighbor with an AK-47 assault rifle. He served at Pleasant Valley State Prison until his release in July 2008. With the group, he won a Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance in 1997 and an American Music Award in 2007.
He is at the Santa Clarita station on a no-bail hold and is scheduled to appear in court on Monday.
