Prosecutors say rapper Tone Loc has pleaded not guilty to a felony domestic violence charge stemming from an arrest earlier this year.
Tone Loc (real name Anthony Smith), 45, entered the plea in a Burbank courthouse on Thursday. Known for the hits “Wild Thing” and “Funky Cold Medina,” Tone Loc was arrested in the city which is north of Los Angeles on June 18.
He also faces a felony possession of an assault weapon charge because Burbank police discovered he has an unregistered Colt AR-15 rifle.
He returns to court on July 28.
Police have released few details saying only that Tone Loc was taken into custody after a woman accused him of assault.
