Eek-a-mouse awaits extradition on N.C. charges

Rob Morris | December 3, 2012


Reggae artist Ripton J. Hylton, known as “Eek-a-mouse,” has been deported from Paraguay and faces extradition to North Carolina on 4-year-old charges, police say.

Kill Devil Hills police reported that Hylton had left the country sometime after his arrest on rape and narcotics charges in August of 2008. He has said he is innocent.

In 2010, Hylton missed a court date in Dare County after flight cancellations in Europe related to volcanic ash. His lawyer said the absence was not intentional.

But Superior Court Judge Jerry Tillett issued a warrant for Hylton’s arrest with a $1 million bond for failure to appear, the Virginian-Pilot reported at the time.

As of Thursday, police said, Hylton was in custody awaiting extradition to North Carolina from Florida. He was found in Paraguay Nov. 21 without a proper visa and deported, according the the KDH Police Department’s November crime blotter.

Before the 2008 incident, Hylton performed at Outer Banks nightspots.
