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.

Jon Stewart Rejects Placement On Daily News Best Dressed List

He who wears a blank t-shirt in nearly every “behind-the-scenes” off-air segment or spread we’ve ever seen, finds himself on the same list as Mos Def.

10. JON STEWART: For his on-air work as host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” Stewart sports the oh-so-anchorly uniform of shirt, jacket and tie. Off-air, the 44-year-old comedian is seriously stylish in sweaters and tees, jeans and a sexy leather coat. News reports on his show are fake. His personal style is the real deal.

Hillary Clinton, by the way, was #1.
