Rapper Flesh-N-Bone appeared in a Santa Clarita courtroom yesterday (April 6), where he pleaded not guilty to gun possession charges.
Flesh, born Stanley Howse told the court via his lawyer, that the gun found in his possession belonged to his wife - a Chicago police officer.
His car was stopped last Thursday in Canyon County, due to a faulty brake light.
When officers later searched his residence in Canyon County, they found his wife's gun, locked inside of a suitcase, in a closet.
The rapper explained that the firearm belong to his wife, who is on leave from the CPD.
Still, the D.A. arrested Flesh due to his prior convictions, which include assaulting an acquaintance with an AK-47, a crime that sent the rapper to prison for almost 10 years.
Flesh-N-Bone was paroled in July 2008 and many fans hope to see the rapper reunite and release records with his platinum selling group, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony.
Flesh-N-Bone is due back in court on April 16. His bail was reduced to $135,000.
