Another DeBarge family member has been arrested for narcotics possession; this time it’s brother Mark. The former member of the famed 80′s R&B singing group sensation DeBarge was arrested in a Hollywood hotel along with an unidentified female, reports TMZ.
Mark is a singer, trumpet-player and songwriter who is best known for co-writing the DeBarge signature hit “Stay With Me.” The timeless chart-topper has been sampled by such great artists as the Notorious B.I.G., Mary J. Blige and Mariah Carey.
The 52-year-old artist was in a hotel room with a woman who, reportedly, was on parole. When her parole officer entered the couple’s room for a routine check, drugs were discovered. There was no information as to the type of drugs discovered.
After being arrested and charged with drug possession, Mark was reportedly released on bail.
Mark and troubled siblings Bunny, El, James, Chico, Bobby and Randy have all suffered from drugs and alcohol addiction. Just last month Elwere arrested for drug possession, although those charges were later dropped. Last year, James was sent to jail on drug and assault with a deadly weapon charges.
