Vanilla Ice arrested
Vanilla Ice is in big trouble with the law.
The rapper and reality TV star bonded out of jail after being arrested and charged with breaking into and stealing from an abandoned home that is in foreclosure in Florida.
The one-time rapper, whose real name is Robert Van Winkle, sometimes renovates homes and was apparently renovating one next to the foreclosed property.
Police say the abandoned home was burglarized sometime between December and this month numerous items were stolen such as furniture, bicycles and a pool heater. Officials executed a search warrant and say some of the stolen goods were found in the home that’s under the care and control of Van Winkle.
He was taken into custody and charged with burglary of a residence and grand theft.
Vanilla Ice rose to fame in 1990, following the release of his hit song “Ice Ice Baby.”

The owner of the venue quickly canceled the performance and police took Afroman, real name, Joseph Foreman, into custody. He was released after posting $330 bond.
Afroman later told TMZ that a man had been heckling him throughout the show and when someone bumped into him he thought it was that man.
The 40-year old rapper is best known for the hit, “Because I Got High.”
