KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) - A Jamaican dancehall star who has made headlines for his recurrent troubles with the law has been arrested by police again.

A police statement says rapper Bounty Killer was arrested Monday at his home in Jamaica for allegedly assaulting a girlfriend. Police did not disclose details of the alleged attack, citing an ongoing probe.

The entertainer whose offstage name is Rodney Price already is being prosecuted on previous charges of illegal possession of a firearm, marijuana possession, and unlawful wounding and assault.

Price's attorney could not be reached. He is due to be arraigned April 7.

The dancehall rapper is best known for the album "My Xperience," and his collaboration on the song "Hey Baby" with U.S. pop band No Doubt.
