Rap Riot: A member of the Compton-based rap group N.W.A. is among five men facing inciting-to-riot and other charges after their arrest last weekend during a hotel lobby brawl in New Orleans. Police listed Andre Young, 27, known as Dr. Dre, as one of the suspects involved in an attack on officers who were trying to break up a fight. The fracas allegedly started after N.W.A. and some fans were denied entrance to the Sheraton Hotel because they did not have entry passes. A 15-year-old boy was stabbed, four policemen were slightly injured, the windshield of a police car was shattered and a hotel door was damaged. The rappers were in New Orleans for a radio convention.
