Deuce Collaborator Truth: ‘God Took Over’ in Wild Police Chase
A member of former Hollywood Undead singer Deuce‘s solo band has a little legal trouble at the moment. Vardan Aslanyan, better known in the rap/rock community as Truth, was arrested Saturday night (June 16) in Los Angeles after leading police on a lengthy chase.
According to Los Angeles station KTLA, an off-duty police officer spotted the musician driving recklessly and a pursuit started when Truth decided not to pull over. He led police on a chase across several freeways at times exceeding 100 miles per hour. He eventually was captured after crashing into a pair of vehicles and spinning out of control.
As part of the crash, Truth caused a vehicle to overturn with a man and his young child inside. Once captured, TV cameras caught the musician, who stated, “I just want to make history … Why should I stop when I’m an artist?” When told of the accident he caused, he stated, “I just want to apologize from the bottom of my heart. I would never disrespect no one’s child.” He was also quoted as saying that “God took over” while he was speeding through the freeways of Los Angeles.
The rhyme-slinger was taken into custody on suspicion of DUI, felony evading and possession of a controlled substance.
Truth is featured on four tracks on Deuce’s 2012 solo debut album ‘Nine Lives.’ He appears on the songs ‘I Came to Party,’ ‘Freaky Now,’ ‘Nobody Likes Me’ (which also features Falling in Reverse singer Ronnie Radke) and ‘Till I Drop.’ He is also a member of Deuce’s touring band.
Truth’s legal troubles come just a few weeks after Deuce’s claim that he was jumped by his ex-bandmates in Hollywood Undead.
