Dirty Bastard, who openly flaunted his escape to
authorities by performing last week, has been caught.
Less than a
week ago ODB vowed to a Crowd at New York 's Hammerstein Ballroom
that he would eat "like a bird," while the fugitive
performed with the rest of the Wu Tang Clan. The 31 year old
Wu Tang rapper was arrested at a McDonald's in Philly early
Tuesday (November 28), while he tried to place an order for
ODB had been
on the run from since October 17 when he escaped a Pasadena,
California, drug-rehabilitation center where he was committed
to for violating his probation. The violation stemmed from
1999 charges of wearing a bulletproof vest and making "terroristic"
threats. (As a felon, it is unlawful for ODB to wear a bulletproof
vest.) Also wanted for several alleged crimes in New York
City, Old Dirty was nabbed as he was recognized by a female
police officer while driving through the McDonald's drive-thru.
Ironically, the police officer claimed to be a fan of Wu Tang
and Old Dirty.
Because he is a flight risk,
a judge ordered Dirty held without bail in a Philadelphia
jail until December 7, when a hearing will determine whether
he is extradited to New York or back to California.
