Lil Scrappy ran afoul of the law again Tuesday (August 27). The Love & Hip Hop star was arrested at a gas station after getting into a fight with a man he said disrespected his girlfriend, according to TMZ.
An off duty cop happened to be outside the station when someone called 911 about a brawl around 2:30 AM. The officer was able to separate Scrappy and the other man, identified as Kenny Rogers.
Both men were arrested for disorderly conduct and taken to a nearby police station. The rapper was released the same day.
"He was calling my girlfriend names and then put his hands on me. So I had to lay them paws on him," Scrappy told TMZ.
The rapper's lawyer, Mawuli Mel Davis, says there is video proof that his client was acting in self defense.
Scrappy, who is already on on probation stemming from a 2008 felony marijuana and gun possession case, went to jail in March after an arrest warrant was issued when he refused to submit a new urine test following a dispute over the first one. When he went back to court in May, he tested positive for marijuana.
He subsequently checked into rehab for an addiction to weed.
