Darryl Kevin Richardson aka Lil Scrappy of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, posed for the above mugshot after he was arrested in Atlanta earlier today (October 1, 2012).
Scrappy even took a moment to give his fans a heads up via twitter earlier, stating:
His crime? Probation violation stemming from that incident back in 2008 where he was busted selling weed.
Details + photos from the scene of his arrest below…
TMZ obtained photos of the 28-year-old rapper being taken into custody on the side of the road where he was handcuffed.
The Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star was booked into Dekalb County jail around 5:38pm today and as of the writing of this post, he doesn’t have a bail amount set.
Scrappy was sentenced back in 2008 to 5 years probation for that weed bust and was just about to round out the year on a high note, with rumors swirling that he’d signed on for a 2nd season of the hit VH1 reality tv show.
It was reportedly a condition of Scrappy’s 2008 probation that he was 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.
There’s no word on what exactly Scrappy did that got him popped, but we know it wasn’t child support since his ‘baby mama’ turnt fianc?, ?Erica Dixon, “reportedly” took him off of it.
Another day… another “rapper” arrested. Who’s next?
