Vanilla Ice Has Been Arrested For Burglary That May Involve Reality Show

By HHL Editors

Tough day for flash-in-the pan rappers. First Afroman acted like somebody who hasn't been getting his weed and slugged a chick in the face. Now Vanilla Ice -- Mr. 1990 -- has been busted for stealing.

Police in Lantana, Florida have arrested Ice (Robert Matthew Van Winkle) for burglary and grand theft after he allegedly removed furniture, a pool heater, bicycles and other goods from a vacant home.

The property Ice is said to have stolen from is right next to a home the 47-year old has been renovating as part of his reality show The Vanilla Ice Project. While the home appeared abandoned, its owner complained and police later found the goods he was missing in Ice's possession.

Vanilla hasn't been officially booked yet, and police say he is cooperating fully with the investigation and has returned the items.

Ice has had success lately as a house flipper, but this arrest certainly calls his renovation tactics into question. For the latest Hip Hop tracks and news, follow us on Twitter.
