Bone Thugs-N-Harmony rapper FLESH-N-BONE has protested his innocence against gun charges filed against him following his arrest last week (02Apr09).
The star, real name Stanley Howse, was booked by police in Santa Clarita, California after cops found a firearm in his car.
He was held behind bars over the weekend (03-05Apr09) and went before a judge on Monday (06Apr09).
But a representative insists the lyricist, who completed a prison stint for a probation violation last July (08), has left his criminal past firmly behind him, and is confident he will be cleared of any wrongdoing.
Speaking before the court hearing, Flesh-N-Bone's spokesperson tells SOHH.com, "At this time all the facts have not been revealed publicly, however I can assure you 100 per cent that Mr. Howse has not walked backwards.
"We live in a great American country where one is innocent until proven guilty."
