    Vanilla Ice charged with burglary related to reality show

    'Ice — the stage name of Robert Van Winkle — was taken into custody Wednesday and is being charged with burglary and grand theft in connection with an incident that happened sometime within the past month, said Lantana police chief Sean Scheller. Numerous items of furniture, a pool heater, bicycles and more were stolen.'

    Police say many of the items were found in Lantana, Florida, next door to a house Ice was renovating for his reality show The Vanilla Ice Project, launched in 2010. Other items were found in his home at Palm Beach County. All have been returned to their owners. Ice is said to be co-operating.

    That's a bummer. I love how he's been able to re-invent himself over the years. This is an awful miss-step.

    Bumbumbum dada bum bum, Ice ice baby!

    IT could be that it is more than it appears. He has no need to steal anything.. I will wait to see where this goes.

    Robert Van Winkle aka Vanilla Ice thought the home was abandoned. That is not a reason to steal.

    What I took from the story on NBC was they arrested him because he was responsible for the property where the stolen things were found. "Lantana Police said they carried out a search warrant and found several stolen items at the neighboring home under his "care and control."" Somehow that wording doesn't say to me he was arrested for actually stealing the items. I also wonder what made them decide to get a search warrant for that location.

    Ice has been released from custody and says it is 'all a misunderstanding' and will be 'cleared up'. There's a video at the link but there must be something wrong with my ears or computer because I couldn't make out a word he was saying.

    He's looking pretty good, I haven't seen him since his 'ice, ice, baby' days lol.

    Just watched your vid at link Z, Robert says, 'It's a shame good news doesn't travel this fast.' But the reporter was little more difficult to understand, and also the vid stopped midway so didn't get all of it.

    I have to wonder if that is all true... Or if he is taking the blame for something his crew did??

    I just have to give him the benefit of the doubt right now. I want to see more about this first
