Singer El DeBarge was arrested on suspicion of felony vandalism in the San Fernando Valley.
DeBarge, 57, whose birth name is Eldra DeBarge, was taken into custody about 9 p.m. on July 13 by officers from the Los Angeles Police Department’s West Valley Station.
He was released about 10 a.m. on July 14 on $20,000 bail, jail records show.
According to TMZ.com, the singer got into an argument “and chased a man out of a house … forcing him to retreat to a nearby RV.”
“We’re told DeBarge was not deterred, and followed after the guy with a wrench, which he allegedly smashed into the RV’s windshield,” TMZ reported. “That’s when the other guy called [the] police, who arrested DeBarge for felony vandalism.”
DeBarge is known for the song, “Rhythm of the Night,” first released in 1985, which was featured in the 2016 film “Ghostbusters: Answer the Call.”
