LOS ANGELES (AP) â€” Rapper ODB is AWOL.
An arrest warrant was issued for Russell Tyrone Jones, the Wu Tang Clan member who goes by ODB, after he fled a court-ordered drug rehabilitation center and didn't show up for an Oct. 17 hearing. His probation was revoked by Superior Court Judge Marshal Revel.
The district attorney is recommending prison time.
Jones, 31, was sentenced last November to the Pasadena treatment program as part of a plea bargain on a charge of making a terroristic threat. He was also placed on three years of probation.
Jones pleaded no contest to being a convicted felon in possession of body armor in February 1999 and to making threats at a West Hollywood nightclub in September 1998.
