D’Angelo Arrested for Soliciting Police Officer for Sex


R&B crooner D’Angelo has been absent from the spotlight for years, but he reappeared this weekend in police custody.

The Grammy winner, 36, was arrested Saturday around 2:30 a.m. after allegedly offering an undercover policewoman $40 for oral sex while driving through New York City’s West Village, according to the New York Post.

D’Angelo, born Michael Archer, spotted a woman he took to be a prostitute. He was arrested and charged with solicitation after asking the woman for sex, sources report. He had $12,000 stored in his Range Rover.

The arrest comes as he is recording his third studio album, the first since 2000′s platinum-selling Voodoo.

    first off it’s D’Angelo really how hard could it be to get a chick to wax his pole? second off D’Angelo? really? i mean of all the R&B peeps D’Angelo. I mean you make be asking yourself who is D’Angelo? And the answer is the dude who went nude. this would be MUCH less embarrassing had it been Maxwell, or Ginuwine or someone else. Anyway much as I’m pulling for ya you did the deed. you got caught and that’s that. This isn’t like being gay and making out with another dude in the privacy of your own home. Prostitution is illegal. d.A.N. reminds me of those people who are already sending cries of ‘Free Lil Wayne’ throughout the internet. I mean come on. Rapper does the crime and he shouldn’t do the time? What kind of model is that?
