Oh, man. SMH…..from TMZ:
â€œRhythm of the Nightâ€ singer El DeBarge was arrested for drug possession in L.A. yesterday â€¦ and cops believe El may have been trying to deal the junk.
El was popped around 2 PM in Encino, CA â€¦ after LAPD officers observed him participating in what appeared to be a drug deal with another man near the 101 Freeway.
DeBarge was arrested for possession of narcotics with intent to sell. Itâ€™s the 3rd time El has been arrested for drug possession since 2001.
He was hauled to a nearby jail where he was booked and released on $30k bail. El is due back in court next month.
Fun Fact â€” Elâ€™s brother Chico is currently serving time (again) behind bars after being arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and drug charges.
