Nate Dogg 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.
Nate rolled into the court room in a wheel chair. The one-time go to man for rap hooks was left partially paralyzed after the stroke he suffered six months ago, according to E! Online.
As SOHH previously reported, he’s looking at two felony counts of making criminal threats, a stalking charge and a misdemeanor for driving on a suspended license when he was cuffed in previous DUI.
The 38-year-old was hauled in on June 23 after the California Highway Patrol fielded a 911 call from his wife who identified herself only as Latoya C., claiming that he was chasing her on an L.A. freeway.
Nate Dogg would have been released on $50,000 bond, but Compton Superior Court Commissioner Joel Wallenstein upped the amount to $100,000 this morning, so Nate had to be held in lieu of the balance. It was paid, however and he was allowed to go home.
He’ll be back in court August 1 where it will be decided whether the charges will result in an actual trial.
