Tone Loc Arrested on Domestic Violence Charge

by at .

Following an alleged physical altercation with the mother of one of his children, rapper Tone Loc was arrested for domestic violence over the weekend.

The 45-year-old, best known for '80s rap hits "Wild Thing" and "Funky Cold Medina," was arrested around 2:45 p.m. on Saturday in Burbank, Calif.

It was reported that Tone posted $50,000 bail and was released from jail after three hours. Police did not reveal who the alleged victim was.

Perhaps known for his gravelly voice and laid-back attitude, Tone Loc's pair of #1 singles both came from his 1989 debut, Loc-ed After Dark.

A less successful follow-up, Cool Hand Loc, dropped in '91. That was about it.

After his music career cooled off, the rapper used his unmistakable voice to launch a second career as a voiceover star and sometime actor.

Last December, Loc was arrested for DUI, but his manager said he does not drink and it was a seizure that caused him to drive erratically.

Tone has yet to comment publicly on this weekend's arrest.
