Vanilla Ice was bailed out of jail after being arrested in connection with a home burglary, authorities said yesterday. The former rapper, whose real name is Robert Van Winkle, was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail, and charged with burglary residence and grand theft, according to a Chief Sean Scheller at the Lantana Police Department. He was released from jail, a report by ABC News said. Van Winkle spoke to West Palm Beach, Florida, ABC affiliate WPBF. "It's just out of proportion I wish you guys would focus on the good things I've done," he told the station. Asked if the incident is part of his reality show, he laughed and said, "I wish it was--there's nothing fun about this. I wish everyone the best and maybe the good news will travel this fast," he was quoted as saying. In December, the police investigated a burglary at a home near a residence Van Winkle has been renovating. According to authorities, the missing items -- which included furniture, a pool heater, bicycles and other items -- were found at Van Winkle's property and later returned to the owner, the report said. Van Winkle, who is perhaps best known for his hit song, "Ice Ice Baby," has a home renovation show on the DIY Network, "The Vanilla Ice Project. It was unclear whether this property is affiliated with the show.
