Charles Hamilton - Hamilton 'Arrested For Striking Cop'
Rapper Charles Hamilton is in trouble with the law again - he has been arrested over allegations he attacked a police officer.
The troubled rising hip-hop star hit the headlines in July (10) after he checked into a mental institution in New York in a bid to try to deal with the stress of working in the music industry. He was subsequently released after a week following treatment in the hospital's psychiatric unit.
But Hamilton was arrested last week (13Dec10) after he reportedly caused trouble at a series of bars in Cleveland, Ohio. He allegedly struck an officer who was investigating, resulting in an assault charge, according to AllHipHop.com.
The rapper's bail has been set at $25,000 (£16,666), reports the website.
