Lil Scrappy’s recent arrest for disorderly conduct won’t affection his probation
The 29-year-old Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star was caught on camera fighting with former friend and fellow rapper Kenny “KK” Rogers at a gas station in East Point, just outside of Atlanta. The fight reportedly started after Rogers said something disrespectful about Lil Scrappy’s girlfriend.
An off-duty police officer who happened to be at the gas station quickly broke up the fight. When on-duty officers arrived at the gas station at 2:33 am, Lil Scrappy — whose real name is Darryl Kevin Richardson — and Rogers were arrested. They were taken into custody at East Point Jail.
Scrappy told officers that Rogers started the fight. He cooperated with police and was released shortly after he was given a citation for disorderly conduct.
Video at the gas station allegedly shows Rogers pushing Scrappy in the face.
Lil Scrappy’s lawyer, Mawuili Mel Davis, said, “Mr. Rogers was clearly intoxicated and was the aggressor. Scrappy had to defend himself.”
The rapper reported to probation Wednesday morning, and it was determined that the arrest would not affect the remaining four months of his probation.
Lil Scrappy was on probation stemming from a 2008 arrest for felony marijuana and gun possession, among other charges. The rapper was arrested in April for switching his urine sample for one that was “cold to the touch.” Scrappy then failed a court-ordered drug test in May.
Davis said Scrappy “went and sought clinical help and was diagnosed with marijuana addition and post-traumatic stress disorder” after the failed drug test.
Lil Scrappy has had one another probation violation arrest since 2008 — he didn’t report a change in address in October after moving.
“It was an unfortunate situation that he attempted to avoid,” Mawuli Mel Davis said. Lil Scrappy is not pressing charges against Kenny Rogers.
