RUMOR CONTROL: "Parent 'Hood" Star Tyrone Burton Cuffed, But WASN'T Bootlegging DVDs
Remember that late 90's sitcom "Parent 'Hood" with "Zaria," "Michael," "CeCe," and Robert Townsend's character? Remember "T.K.", government name Tyrone Burton? Well news and pics broke tonight of him getting handcuffed in L.A. due to him allegedly bootlegging DVDs on he street.
But that's not the real story. Read on for the juice...
Sources reported tonight that Tyrone was cuffed by LAPD this afternoon on suspicion of selling bootlegged DVDs. But police couldn't find evidence of him breaking the law, so he was let go.
But YBF has learned that the incident happened yesterday afternoon--not today. And not only was Tyrone not bootlegging DVDs, he was actually out on the streets selling his own DVD called Promise. A photographer named Kat, who snapped the pics, said that once LAPD figured out he was selling his own ish, they immediately let him go.
No harm, no foul. Props on his hustle. But damn, homie who's made it in the industry over 10 years is out on the streets selling his own DVDs now? Just feel like an agent or street team or somebody should be pitching in for this duty. He is kinda looking like one of those dudes who walks up in the beauty shop shop on Saturday hawking the bootlegged movies that just came out on Friday. Just sayin'....
