OK…OK…I know you’re tired of all the Rick Ross jokes, but this post is serious. In my quest for mug shots today, I found Rick Ross’ shot from January 2008. We all know he lied about being a corrections officer, but doesn’t this ALMOST give him his street cred back. I mean…he was actually arrested for a FELONY for carrying a concealed gun and was also charged with a misdemeanor for pot possession. Funny thing is…all of this occured in Miami, and he was probably locked up in the same jail he used to patrol in his tight polyester pants! 😆
My obsession with mugshots is taking up alot of posts this week…they’ve been coming back to back! Earl Simmons, aka DMX, was arrested AGAIN last night (I told y’all the month wasn’t over yet…). DMX was arrested in Phoenix and charged with a felony charge of false identity and it doesn’t look like he’ll be getting out any time soon! Continue Reading…
You can get ‘crunk in the club’ but not on the streets of D.C. after midnight! Lil Scrappy may not WANT ‘no problems’ but he certainly found them last night in Dekalb County. Scrappy aka Darryl Richardson was locked up last night and is currently being held in Dekalb County Jail on a $1500 bond. He was booked around 12:51am this morning after getting into an altercation with his sister’s boyfriend. The boyfriend allegedly stabbed Scrappy in the arm and once police arrived they found a .38 Caliber, 2 lbs of weed and $8,000 in his car. The police have charged him with felony firearm/knife possession, felony marijuana possession, misdemeanor battery, and misdemeanor obstruction of officers. Thanks StyleRazzi for the tip!
Rapper/Producer Warren G. aka Warren Griffin, III was arrested this morning in LA and charged with “possession of marijuana with intent to sell“. Warren G. was a passenger in a car driven by 29 year old Ryan Butler, who was pulled over after running a red light near Hollywood Boulevard and Wilcox Avenue. After a search of the car, officers reportedly found a large amount of maijuana and both men were arrested for intent to sell. Griffin and Butler each posted $20,000 bail; they were released between 9:30 and 10 a.m. this morning. (Source)
Comon now….it’s Warren G! We already know he’s a weed smoker…and judging from the amount of bail, the amount found was probably just their stash for the night. Don’t believe me….well, check out Warren G. & Ron Isley Smoking Out after the jump…
Yet another one for the mugshot gallery! NBA star Carmelo Anthony, 23, was arrested by Colorado police and charged with drunk driving. According to the cops, Melo was pulled over after police saw his silver Mercedes weaving and failing to dim its lights. He subsequently failed a series of field sobriety tests and was taken to a Denver Police Department lockup where he consented to a blood test and posed for the above mug shot. (Source)
Yet another mug shot to add to your hip hop collection…. Rapper Lil Wayne aka Dwayne Carter was arrested at a Border Patrol checkpoint in Arizona and charged with possession of cocaine, possession of ecstasy and possession of drug paraphernalia!
Cops say they found 105 grams of marijuana, 29 grams of cocaine and 41 grams of ecstasy pills on his tour bus — after they stopped at a Border Patrol checkpoint.
Police also found $22,000 in cash and a 40-caliber pistol, but Wayne, we’re told, does have a permit to carry a concealed weapon in the state of Florida. They tell us they’re checking to see if that carries over to Arizona. (Source)
Wierd thing is, his bond was set at $10,000…which seems MIGHTY low for such serious charges. Either he is one lucky sumt’n or we’re not hearing the entire story… stay tuned.
