Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star Lil’ Scrappy was arrested early this morning at a Georgia gas station after getting into a fight with a guy who allegedly disrespected his girlfriend.
Cops received a call about a fight going down inside the gas station around 2:33 AM. An off-duty police officer from Atlanta happened to be at the same gas station and successfully breaking up the fight.
When on-duty cops arrived to the scene Lil’ Scrappy and the other man were arrested for disorderly conduct and hauled to a nearby police station.
The other man arrested is Kenny Rogers (not the singer) just a random guy who also happens to share the same name as the country legend. Lil’ Scrappy was very cooperative once in custody and was released a short time later.
TMZ spoke with Scrappy who insists Kenny Rogers was the aggressor “He was calling my girlfriend names and then put his hands on me so I had to lay them paws on him.” Always the paws.
Lil’ Scrappy’s lawyer Mawuli Mel Davis tells us there’s video that proves Scrappy was acting in self-defense. Lil’ Scrappy says he plans to cooperate with law enforcement moving forward and is now trying to focus on the next season of his reality show. So hasn’t been fired? Hmmm. What are your thoughts?
