THE PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS' DAN GROSS reports PHILADELPHIA Police confirmed last night that a warrant has been issued for the arrest of CLEAR CHANNEL Urban WUSL (POWER 99) morning team member UNCLE O (real name TRACY JACKSON) after he allegedly pulled a gun on a club owner early SUNDAY. He'll be charged with aggravated assault, said Capt. BEN NAISH.
UNCLE O had co-hosted a live broadcast at CLUB SAMBA and, after arguing outside the club with its owner JUSTIN LOVE, O allegedly got into his black JEEP CHEROKEE, leveled a handgun at LOVE and told him, "I will shoot you in the f---ing face," an eyewitness told THE NEWS yesterday.
Reached yesterday, LOVE declined comment about the incident. UNCLE O was on the air, along with his HOT BOYZ partner MIKEY DREDD, yesterday. A POWER 99 spokeswoman did not return messages asking whether the station would take disciplinary action.
