According to court documents, the incident occurred back in February when Glocc, 41, whose real name is Lawrence White, was arrested on 2 counts of intentionally promoting the prostitution of an individual and 1 count of inducing an individual to practice prostitution.
In docs, obtained by TMZ on February 23, the 41-year-old drove a woman to an unknown location after an undercover cop contacted her through an ad posted on Backpage.com. The woman was arrested but not before cops noticed a Bluetooth headset around her neck with a live call on the phone.
