R&B singer and songwriter El DeBarge was arrested in Los Angeles yesterday for drug possession, a situation in which authorities also believe he may have been trying to distribute the product as well. 

Around 2pm yesterday, Los Angeles police officers kept an eye on the singer as he interacted with someone else in what looked to be a potential "deal" going down and he was apprehended shortly after.

Arrested on charges of possession with intent to sell, DeBarge chalks up his 3rd arrest for the same crime since 2001.

It's sad that DeBarge's choices have overshadowed his undeniable talent.
