El DeBarge arrested on domestic violence charge

The R&B singer is in trouble again

Singer El DeBarge was arrested near Los Angeles earlier this week for investigation of domestic violence, according to authorities.

DeBarge, who led the family band DeBarge in the ’80s before going solo, was arrested Sunday (August 26) in Lancaster, California, said Deputy Eric Eitner of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

He is being held without bail because he has two previous warrants out for his arrest in narcotics cases, reports the Associated Press.

DeBarge, whose real first name is Eldra, has another arrest under his belt for allegedly failing to pay child support.
