Lil Scrappy was arrested yesterday after getting involved in a fight at a gas station in Georgia, as stated from TMZ. The “Love & Hip Hop” rapper says the fight broke out because he was defending his girlfriend from a man who was disrespecting her.
“He was calling my girlfriend names and then put his hands on me…so I had to lay them paws on him,” Lil Scrappy told TMZ.
According to TMZ, the fight took place at 2:30 am but an off-duty cop was present at the scene and broke up the fight. Once police arrived, Scrappy and the other man were arrested for disorderly conduct.
TMZ states that Lil Scrappy followed the authorities orders and was released shortly after.
According to TMZ, Lil Scrappy’s lawyer, Mawuli Mel Davis, says there is video available that shows and proves his client was defending himself and only acting in self-defense.
