Popular hook crooner Nate Dogg, 38, appeared in a Compton court yesterday to plead not guilty to felony charges related to his arrest last month for allegedly threatening his estranged wife.
According to reports, on June 23rd of this year the California Highway Patrol responded to a 911 call from his wife who identified herself only as Latoya C., claiming that Nate was chasing her on an L.A. freeway.
According to E! Online, Nate, who was left partially paralyzed after he suffered a stroke six months ago, entered the courtroom yesterday in a wheel chair.He is currently faces a stalking charge, two felony counts of making criminal threats, and a misdemeanor charge for driving on a suspended license when previously pulled over for an unrelated DUI.
Nate Dogg was initially scheduled to be released on $50,000 bond, but Compton Superior Court Commissioner Joel Wallenstein raised the amount to $100,000 this morning, leaving Nate still $50,000 short. The bond has since been paid, however, and he consequently was allowed to go home.
Nate Dogg is scheduled to be back in court August 1st at which time it will be decided whether the charges will result in an actual trial.
