Bone Thugs Rapper Cleared, Yet Still in Jail

4/21/2009 3:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The famous rapper in the accompanying mug shot is still behind bars -- even though the charges he was arrested on have just been dropped. Kinda messed up, right?

Stanley Howse, aka Flesh-n-Bone from the rap group Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, was just cleared of gun and marijuana possession stemming from an April 2 arrest in Santa Clarita, California. But due to the fact that Stanley was on parole when he was arrested, Howse has to remain behind bars until his lawyer, Shepard Kopp, can clear up his parole hold.

Kopp tells us he hopes to have it done within the week.

NOT AT ALL "MESSED UP". LOCAL JURISDICTIONS FREQUENTLY DROP CHARGES AGAINST PAROLEES WHO VIOLATE PAROLE AND LEAVE IT TO THE BUREAU OF PRISON TERMS TO IMPOSE TIME FOR PAROLE VIOLATION- THEREBY SAVING THE LOCAL COURTS/TAXPAYERS THE COST OF A NEW PROSECUTION.

So all you out there are saying someone cannot be reformed? Noone out there can say they havent made mistakes when they were young. Why is he being judged for how he dresses? Give the guy a break. I know him, he is staying clean and wants to be with his family. He realizes his bad choices he has made. He is not a murderer. You are all stereotyping him. I CAN SAY THIS, I AM A WHITE GIRL. Have a positve thought that people can change and better themselves.

So.......Having a gun and some weed while on PROBATION is okay? That just seems wrong.

First off, Little kids who were born after 1990 who claim lil wayne as their hero should not comment hero. You know nothing of this man or Bone Thugs. Secondly rich suburbanites who have white picket fences n go to private schools have no say here either. (Most likely tho the comments are from Old white people who listen to rock, they seem to be worse than kids...

"Pippy Longstalking"? When u get locked up for as long as he has with that kind of hair and have no access to hair accessories you find a better way of keeping your hair from being a mess or in the way...

"He should stay locked up"? Oh how nice...

"He's guilty by expression"? Mug shots aren't made to make people look innocent or cordial. Not like this was a cover shoot for a magazine or anything...

Lastly, get ya facts str8 before coming out ya mouths about people you don't know.

to dieorflyhotboy and everyone hating on flesh, heres the truth!
he can't get charged for anything! many reasons as to why, so yah'll can shut your mouth and stop hatin'
1. the cops who pulled him over lied on their report and the media saying the gun was in his car
2. the cops did an illegal search of flesh's house and only taped before and after the search and nothing in between, so cops aint got no evidence
3. cops used a saw to break open a suitcase where they found the handgun, in which it belongs to Flesh N Bone's wife, who is a CHIGAGO POLICE OFFICER, who left it there, locked up during a vacation leave or whatnot
4. Flesh-N-Bone has a Marijuana Health Card or something which is not hard to get in the state of Cali. He received this card from David"Rainman"Banta, the mixer/producer for the group, bone Thugs-n-Harmony

He cannot be charged with gun possesion or drug possesion!!!!!!!!!!!!!
STOP HATIN' Flesh just came back from an 8 year sentence in jail and has grown to be more mature! he would not want to risk that and put more years to not seeing his family + friends. he has definately not walked backwards!

REPRESENTING BONE THUGS-N-HARMONY
watch out for UNI-5!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
