[Robert Van Winkle] and Martin are scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Division 101 of Van Nuys Municipal Court. Van Winkle, who is out of town, may not attend the hearing, but can be represented by an attorney, Goldstein said.
[James N. Gregory] told police he approached the rapper and Martin at 2 a.m., trying to sell them a silver chain. Van Winkle, sitting in the passenger seat of a 1991 Jeep Cherokee, showed him a 9-millimeter pistol and said, "Get . . away from me," Gregory said.
Van Winkle was originally booked on suspicion of brandishing a weapon, but when investigators attempted to contact Gregory a week after the arrest for more information, "he just seemed to vanish," Goldstein said.
