Pinellas burglary defense lawyers.jpgBreaking news from ABC news where 90’s rapper/celebrity turned reality TV star Vanilla Ice (real name Robert Van Winkle) was arrested for burglary in Florida.

The former musician, who rose to fame with his single “Ice, Ice Baby” was bonded out of Palm Beach County jail after being arrested for burglary and grand theft.

Mr. Ice was quick to deny that his arrest had anything to do with his reality TV show “The Vanilla Ice project” and claimed that the whole situation was blown out of proportion.

Per the Palm Beach police, Vanilla was arrested due to a burglary in December near a house that he was renovating. Several of the missing items, such as a pool heater and furniture, were found on Vanilla’s property and later returned.

Police are saying that the ex-rapper is cooperative and as of this writing, it is unknown if the stolen property was part of his construction show.

Vanilla has had a few prior run ins with the law including arrests for domestic violence, drug possesion and driving on a suspended license. These new charges are very serious. The grand theft is a third degree felony, punishable by up to five years in prison. The burglary can be punishable by up to life depending on how it is charged.
