Police Pull Rohan Marley From Car

January 9, 1999

NEW YORK (AP) _ Things got a little tense when Bob Marley’s son went to warm up the car for his wife, Grammy nominee Lauryn Hill.

Rohan Marley apparently had fallen asleep inside his car while waiting for Hill to leave a New York recording studio early Friday when an electrical malfunction caused a fire.

The electrical malfunction prevented Marley, 26, from opening the locks or windows. Police broke a window and pulled Marley from the car.

At about the same time, Hill came running out of the studio, police said. ``She was hysterical. She thought he was still in the car,″ Officer Jose Segura said.

Marley was at a hospital for smoke inhalation and was later released.
