Charles Wilson, a member of the popular Gap Band, was arrested in Hollywood for investigation of possession of cocaine for sale, police said. Details of the arrest were not released, but Sgt. Carl Widman said the musician was booked on suspicion of cocaine for sale and released on $5,342 bail. Wilson, 33, with his brothers, Robert and Ronnie, produced a string of rock-soul hits in the late 1970s and early '80s, including "Early in the Morning" and "You Dropped a Bomb on Me."
