You may remember Tone Loc for his one-time hit, "Funky Cold Medina," or for his earlier chart-topper, "Wild Thing."Well, now he may also be remembered for being arrested and charged with domestic violence and possession of a deadly weapon. The rapper, whose real name is Anthony Smith, pleaded no contest to the charges today and was sentenced to one day in county jail, three years of probation, community service and anger management, according to the Daily News.

Smith was arrested on June 18 in Burbank on suspicion of domestic abuse, and cops later found an unregistered gun in his possession.
