Lil Scrappy has found himself behind bars. The rapper and star of the hit VH1 reality show Love & Hip Hop Atlanta was arrested Monday and charged with a felony probation violation.
Following Scrappy’s latest arrest, he was booked and locked up at the DeKalb County Jail according to TMZ.
While there was no indication on how the 28-year-old personality born Darryl Raynard Richardson violated his probation, records show that in 2008 Scrappy was arrested for marijuana and carrying a concealed weapon, obstruction of officers and fighting. He was sentenced to five years probation.
On Twitter, Scrappy confirmed his detainment.
I just got locked up pray for me
