Lil Scrappy aka Darryl Richardson, was freed this morning on a $1,500 bond after being arrested in Dekalb County Saturday morning (mugshot). It appears that Scrappy’s sister called him over to her North Hairston Road apartment after she and her boyfriend had gotten into a fight. Scrappy was stabbed during the altercation, but did not suffer any life-threatening injuries.
Police have charged Richardson with felony use of a weapon in the the commission of a crime and with felony marijuana possession. Officers found the illegal drug during a search of his car, Hodge said. He also faces one count each of misdemeanor obstruction of police officers and battery.
The sister’s boyfriend was not charged. (Source)
Somebody gave up on DMX (aka Earl Simmons) a long time ago. Where is his wife & kids? What about his family & friends? Lawd…where ARE they???
Do you guys realize that this dude’s been locked up 4 times in the last two months…(two in May 2008 and two in June 2008), and July isn’t over so I’m sure another one’s coming. The most recent arrest (above) occured when DMX approached an undercover officer in Miami asking “where the weed at?” 😯
I feel really bad for him… at 37 he is way to old for this ish. Honestly, I think he and Amy Winehouse should get together and support each other in their recovery efforts. What? It’s just a thought.
Yet another one for the mugshot gallery. This time it’s Atlanta Falcons reserve safety Daren Stone, who was arrested early Sunday morning and charged with DUI. Stone was spotted weaving through traffic around 3am Sunday and Atlanta Police stopped him and charged him with DUI and failure to maintain his lane. The incident occurred at the intersection of Andrew Young and Courtland Streets.
Stone was released from the Atlanta City Jail late Sunday afternoon after posting bonds totaling almost $1,600. (Source)
Marcus Deon Vick has been arrested…again! 😯 Michael Vick’s little brother was arrested early this morning in Norfolk, Virginia after an officer spotted him fighting some chick in a car. After being approached by the officer, dumbass took off and fled the scene! After being caught a few moments later by other officers, he failed a field sobriety test and was arrested for DUI, eluding police, reckless driving and driving with a suspended license. His partner in crime and the woman he was beating in the car, Delicia Lenora Cordon (her mugshot), was also arrested for public intoxication. (Source)
Atlanta transplant and platinum R&B artist, Akon (whose real name is Aliaune Damala Bouga Time Puru Nacka Lu Lu Lu Badara Akon Thiam…no for real…it is!) has recently been called out by one of my favorite sites. TheSmokingGun revealed today that the singer has lied about his criminal past and is not as “Gangsta” as he professes…
While the performer’s rap sheet does include a half-dozen arrests, Akon has only been convicted of one felony, for gun possession. That 1998 New Jersey case ended with a guilty plea, for which the singer was sentenced to three years probation. Another 1998 bust, this one in suburban Atlanta, has been seized upon by Akon and transformed into the big case that purportedly sent him to prison (thanks to his snitching cohorts) for three fight-filled years. In reality, Akon was arrested for possession of a single stolen BMW and held in the DeKalb County jail for several months before prosecutors dropped all charges against him.
So there was no conviction. There was no prison term between 1999 and 2002. And he was never “facing 75 years,” as the singer claimed in one videotaped interview.
Now Knee-grows lyin bout time they DIDN’T spend in jail! What is this world coming to?? 😕
Check out the video and more of the article after the jump…
Michael Vick has applied to an early release drug program. If you recall, he tested positive for marijuana while under house arrest prior to his sentencing. If accepted into the program, it is possible that Vick could be released at least 12 months early.
Vick tested positive for marijuana in September while he was on supervised release following his guilty plea. The residential drug treatment programs at Bureau of Prisons institutions take place in units set apart from the general prison population, lasting at least 500 hours over a six to 12 months, according to Bureau of Prisons policy.
Upon successful completion of the program, non-violent offenders may be granted up to one year of early release. Staff members review the inmates’ records and behavior to determine if they are eligible for early release. (Source)
Let’s see…thats 23 months minus 12 months minus 3 months served would equal about 9 months to go! My guess is that he could be out by Thanksgiving of 2008, which would give him plenty of time to prepare for the 2009 season! Wishful Thinking!
