COP FROM VILLAGE PEOPLE FACES PRISON – AFTER SECOND CHARGE FOR BATTERING GIRLFRIEND

It may be fun to stay at the Y.M.C.A. – but it looks like the cop from the Village People may be headed to a less friendly address.

Singer Victor Willis is in double trouble with the law – and faces up to three years behind bars!

Willis was arrested March 23 for allegedly choking his girlfriend, putting a knife to her throat and threatening to kill her.

But The ENQUIRER has learned exclusively that cops also busted Willis just nine days earlier at a hospital where he was attending drug and alcohol rehab classes!

The 55-year-old entertainer, reportedly the only heterosexual in the group, was nabbed at Aurora San Diego Hospital in California on March 14 after his girlfriend told cops he’d thrown a cup of soda and ice cubes in her face.

She also claimed a boozy Willis – famous for such disco hits as “Macho Man” – threw a suitcase at her and ordered her to leave their hotel room in a previous incident, according to the arrest report.

Willis, who has a long history of drug problems, is free on his own recognizance after being charged with infliction of corporal injury on a spouse, cohabitant, etc.

If convicted, he could get up to three years in jail for violating his probation on a plea bargain deal he made last year in San Mateo County Criminal Court.

At the time, the prosecutor warned the troubled star that he “will go to prison if he does not follow through with this and conquer his addiction.”

His press rep called the latest incident “simply a heated argument that’s been blown way out of proportion.”
