    The criminal case is currently an ongoing investigation.

    Crunchy Black left the Academy-award winning rap group in June 2006 in order to pursue a solo career. The remaining members of the group include DJ Paul and Juicy J.

    Here's hoping Black has a speedy and safe recovery. We're sure he'll be back and poppin' his collar in no time.
