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.


11:22 PM PST -- Elephant Man has been released from custody after posting bail, which was set at 400,000 Jamaican dollars ... roughly $4,637.95 in American currency

Who the hell are these so called stars. TMZ get some real stories instead of trying to make these pigs famous.
You are really low on stories if you try to portray these losers as people who make a difference in the music or sports world. Show and tell some good stuff that will inspire people. You only dig up crap from the very bottom of the barrel.
There are many people out there doing great things.
Do we need to know about somebody shooting themselves in the head or doing some drugs so that you can make their lives worse or make their families feel worse or even embarrassed by their behavior.
TMZ clean up your act.... You are looking like ambulance chasers....just for some imagined or ugly story....

I believe most of these sexual assaults stem from all the sexual enhancement over the counter pills. To much of these kind of incidents is in the news. No one sexual desires should be out of control in this manner.
