Rapper Vanilla Ice arrested for burglary
"It'll all get cleared up, you'll see"
The 1990s rapper Vanilla Ice on Wednesday called his arrest in connection with a burglary “a misunderstanding” and said he is confident he will be cleared.
“It was blown out of proportion. It’s sad that good news doesn’t travel this fast,” Ice, whose real name is Robert Matthew Van Winkle, told reporters as he left jail, NBC station NBC Miami reported.
“It’ll all get cleared up, you’ll see,” he said.
Van Winkle was arrested and charged with burglary and grand theft Wednesday. He was booked at the Palm Beach County Jail and later released.
