The former lead singer of the popular ’80s musical family group DeBarge was spotted allegedly conducting a drug deal in Encino, Calif., with another unidentified man. DeBarge is reportedly being charged with possession for sale of narcotics.
The latest legal embroilment for the 50-year-old falsetto falls in line with most of his previous arrests, which were also drug related. In 2001, DeBarge was arrested for cocaine possession and was granted probation. Five years later, he was cuffed for possession of a controlled substance and was again placed on probation. In 2007, he was slapped with a domestic dispute arrest, and a year after that, he was placed behind bars again for cocaine. Luckily, probation was his only punishment.
