Appropriately Named Accused Criminal II

In "Appropriately Named (Accused) Criminal I", we gave a link to a video detailing the troubles of D'AlCapone AlPacino Morris. Today's post allows you to consider the plight of Alkapone Cruz-Balles - charged with car jacking in Hawaii.

In all fairness, it should be mentioned that there is a rap/hip hop artist who goes by the name Al Kapone (stage name). And it is possible that the person responsible for choosing a name for Mr. Cruz-Balles may know only that cultural reference and not be aware of the exploits of famous gangster Al Capone. Either way, consider the intersections of popular culture and law.
