Mos Def Now Wanted In Vegas — And It’s Not For Gambling

One of FBLA’s favorite actors stands accused in Las Vegas of attacking a paparazzi last August, according to blackvoices.com.mosdef2.jpg

Mos Def, who gave stellar turns in films like “The Italian Job” with Mark Wahlberg, “Something the Lord Made” opposite Alan Rickman and “16 Blocks” with Bruce Willis, went ballistic on a fashion photogapher at Vegas’s annual Men’s Apparel and Garment Industry Convention. It was unclear what provoked him.

Allegedly, Mos snatched photographer Volker Corell’s camera from around his neck before smashing it to the ground and taking off with the busted equipment. And apparently the photographer was left with a cut on his left hand following the incident.

A warrant was issued Mos Def’s arrest in Las Vegas.

He faces faces charges of felony robbery and malicious destruction of private property.
