The rapper Tone Loc has been arrested on suspicion of felony domestic violence in Southern California.

Burbank police Sgt. Tracy Sanchez says 45-year-old Loc, ne Anthony Smith, was arrested Saturday.

Celebrity gossip site TMZ.com reports that the rapper got into an altercation with the mother of his child. He was being held in a Burbank jail on $50,000 bail.

A message left for the rapper's agent Sunday was not immediately returned, and police could not say if he had hired an attorney.
