El Debarge was arrested and jailed after allegedly taking a wrench to the windshield of an RV last Friday. According to reports, Debarge was involved in an argument that ended with DeBarge chasing the man with a wrench. The unidentified man then ran to hide in an RV, where 57-year-old DeBarge attacked the windshield with the tool, which compelled the man being attacked to call the police.
The man called the police, who arrested DeBarge for felony vandalism. He spent the night in jail before posting $20,000 bail.
The singer is no stranger to controversy. In 2001 and 2006, DeBarge was arrested for cocaine/controlled substance possession and given probation both times. In 2007, he was arrested on a domestic dispute, where charges were later dropped. In the following year, he was booked for crack and drug paraphernalia possession, and was sentenced two years in prison in California for violating the terms of his probation. In 2012, he was arrested for possession of narcotics with intent to sell. He was eventually released on $30,000 bail.
