vanilla-ice.jpgVanilla Ice – you know, “Ice, Ice, Baby…”, is in troooouble.

An aside – his legal name is Robert Van Winkle.  I SO think he should have kept that as his “rapper” name.

He was arrested last Thursday for beating up his wife.  He’s been a bad boy.

Per the arrest report, Laura appeared uninjured and—contrary to what she said at first—told the deputies on site that Van Winkle had pushed her.

The call, however, was for hitting and kicking.

Van Winkle, meanwhile, told police that his missus is bipolar and, despite being on medication, tends to get irrational and argumentative, according to the police report. Before the cops arrived, she had thrown a picture frame off of their balcony to the ground below, where it shattered near their 8- and 10-year-old children, he said.

He said, she said – and he said she’s nuts.

He was released Friday.

A judge ordered the musician (real name: Robert Van Winkle) not to have contact with his wife Laura, except by phone.

He goes back to court May 5th.
