Mos Def Becomes a Wanted Man
Thu, 06 Nov 2008 16:10:25
A warrant has been issued for Mos Def's arrest, due to impending felony robbery and malicious destruction charges from the alleged attack of a fashion photographer last August in Las Vegas. Volker Corell of the Men's Apparel and Garment Industry Convention (MAGIC) claims that Mos Def grabbed his camera and smashed it on the ground, cutting Corell's left hand in the process. The rapper/actor then allegedly left with the equipment in hand.
Mos Def has a history of bad blood with the paparazzi, but Corell's credentials for the MAGIC event will likely work against him in this case.
