Man accused of bootlegging Scarface CD




The Cincinnati Enquirer

        A 27-year-old Cleveland man was arrested and charged with selling bootleg copies of a rap compact disc to undercover police officers Tuesday.

        Reginal D. Woodson was arrested by undercover officers with the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office in the parking of the Wal-Mart store in Columbia Township.

        The sheriff's office was alerted to the sale by investigators with the Recording Industry Association of America. They learned that someone was selling bootleg copies of a disc titled “Last of a Dying Breed” by Virgin Records rap singer Scarface. The sales took place on Sept. 9.

        Virgin Records told police the disc has not been officially released, and wouldn't be released until Oct. 3.

        Steve Barnett, a spokesman for the sheriff's office, said arrangements were made to meet Mr. Woodson at the parking lot. About 400 compact discs were purchased by undercover officers. Mr. Woodson was charged with criminal simulation and record piracy.
