Naughty by Nature’s Treach Arrested in New Jersey

Treach, of the hip-hop trio Naughty by Nature, was arrested in Union City, N.J. Friday (April 11) for eluding police, reports

According to the criminal complaint, the Grammy award-winning recording artist, whose legal name is Anthony Criss, was driving a vehicle on either a street or highway leading up to his arrest. He reportedly disregarded police signaling for him to stop the car, and was also speeding down several blocks in a heavy-traffic area, authorities say.

The 43-year-old was taken into custody and has already made a court appearance on the charge.

Bail was set at $15,000, but Treach must clear up a child support debt from New Jersey’s Passaic County, before he is released.The rapper has a daughter with hip hop star Sandra “Pepa” Denton of the group Salt-N-Pepa. It is not clear whether the case in question is related to that child.
No other details about the arrest were publicized.

His attorney, Darryl Smith, had no comment on the matter.
