Rapper Lil Scrappy — the guy behind the 2006 hit “Money in the Bank” — was arrested in Atlanta, Georgia earlier today for violating his probation … TMZ has learned.
TMZ obtained photos of the 28-year-old rapper being taken into custody on the side of the road … where he was handcuffed.
Scrappy — real name Darryl Kevin Richardson II — was booked at the DeKalb County Jail and is on probation stemming from a marijuana conviction in 2008.
He was sentenced to 5 years probation for the weed bust … and was ordered to abstain from the use or possession of any alcoholic beverages or illegal drugs.
He was also ordered to complete an alcohol/drug education program and was ordered to perform 240 hours of community service.
According to official records … at the time Scrappy was arrested for weed, he was also popped for carrying a concealed weapon, obstruction of officers and fighting. He was sentenced to 1 year probation for each of those offenses, but they ran concurrently.
I see said the blind man. And now…
I wonder if MLK’s “I have a dream” speech would have been different if he had known about rappers?
