The rapper is ordered to stay away from his wife after being arrested for alleged domestic battery
Rapper Vanilla Ice was released from a Palm Beach County, Fla., jail Friday after being arrested Thursday night for alleged domestic battery.
A judge ordered the musician (real name: Robert Van Winkle) not to have contact with his wife Laura, except by phone.
The rapper, 40, was released on his own recognizance.
Sheriffs responded to a call from a Wellington, Fla., home Thursday night about a domestic dispute. According to an arrest report, Laura Van Winkle allegedly told a deputy that her husband only pushed her, although she initially told a dispatcher she’d been “struck” and “kicked.”
The rapper is due back in court May 5.
