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.
