Police say the 29-year-old rapper (real name Russell Tyrone Jones) was spotted by a shoe store employee putting on a pair of Nikes worth $50.00 and walking out of the shop in them, reports USA Today. He is due to appear in court on July 28.
It is ODB’s second disappearing act inside a week. Just last week ODB was in the news when he discharged himself from a New York hospital against medical advice. Jones had sought hospital treatment for gunshot wounds after he was shot by intruders who stole money and jewellery from his apartment. (See earlier story.)
