Elephant Man

Arrested on Rape Charges

2/1/2012 9:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Elephant Man
Hip hop star Elephant Man -- the guy behind the 2004 hit "Jook Gal" -- was arrested in Jamaica Monday on suspicion of raping a woman at his St. Andrew home last month.

According to local reports, police launched an investigation after the alleged victim filed a report.

One Jamaican media outlet says E.M. -- real name Oneil Bryan -- was questioned with his lawyer present ... and after the interrogation, officials decided they had enough information to charge the rapper with grievous sexual assault and rape.

Why, TMZ, why do you insist on populating your site with stories about rappers and hip hop artists that no one has ever heard of?
