Last month, entertainer Tone Loc – real name Anthony Smith – was arrested and booked for a DUI after being pulled over at 3:00 a.m. for erratic driving. However, the 44-year-old actor/rapper of “Wild Thing” fame claims alcohol was never involved.
According to TMZ.com, Loc’s manager Bobby Bessone says he suffered a seizure behind the wheel on the morning of December 13. Subsequently, LAPD officers released him 12 hours later on $5,000 bail after learning of his medical condition. Bessone alleges the seizure was likely caused by “bad food he had earlier that day” and that Loc has not drank in years.
Interestingly enough, last year Tone Loc had an apparent seizure in Florida as he collapsed during a performance. He denied the report, citing heat exhaustion as the cause of his onstage spill.
