Well, that's one way to get your name back in the headlines.

Robert Van Winkle, professionally known as Vanilla Ice, was arrested in connection with a residential burglary in Florida, Lantana Police told TV station WTVJ.

Van Winkle, 47, faces charges of burglary and grand theft related to a burglary which occurred sometime between December 2014 and February 2015, Lantana Police said.

The "Ice, Ice Baby" rapper was released after being booked into the Palm Beach County Jail.

"It's a misunderstanding, it was blown out of proportion. It's sad that good news doesn't travel this fast," Van Winkle told reporters as he exited the jail. "It's just out of proportion and I wish you guys would focus on all the good things I've done.

"It'll all get cleared up, you'll see," he added.

Police say that the burglary happened at a house that was in the process of foreclosure. Among the items taken were furniture, a pool heater and bicycles. The items later turned up at a residence under Van Winkle's care and control.

Van Winkle currently hosts "The Vanilla Ice Project" on the DIY network, which features the rapper renovating homes. The network has issued a statement which reads, "DIY Network has been made aware of this situation and is currently looking into the matter."
