It's three strikes and you're out for Wu-Tang member Ol' Dirty Bastard, a.k.a. Big Baby Jesus.
A Virginia judge issued three arrest warrants for the rapper Thursday -- one for each of the scheduled court dates that he has skipped. Each warrant General District Judge Robert L. Simpson Jr. issued against the 29-year-old charges him with failure to appear in court, a misdemeanor that carries up to a year in jail and a $2,500 fine. ODB's charge -- shoplifting -- carries the same maximum penalty.
