I am sad to report El DeBarge was arrested early Sunday morning and charged with weapon and drug possession. 

Burbank police approached the 61-year-old singer, who was parked in a gas station just before 4 a.m. when they noticed his vehicle had expired tags. 

El allegedly had an illegal expandable metal baton in plain sight inside of his car, which prompted police to conduct a search. 

During the search, they allegedly found pepper spray and suspected narcotics (heroin). 

To make matters worse, El DeBarge didn’t have a valid driver’s license.

The “Rhythm of the Night” singer was arrested and booked on several charges including possession of a leaded cane or baton, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia. 

El posted a $25,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court in March. 

Please keep El DeBarge in your thoughts and prayers as he has been through so much and battled so many demons throughout his life.
