Uh-oh! Word on the curb is that legendary rapper Scarface was allegedly arrested after accepting the “I Am Legend Award” at the 2015 BET Hip Hop Awards. Deets inside….
Last night, Hip Hop pioneer Scarface was honored at the 2015 BET Hip Hop Awards with the “I Am Legend Award,” presented by rapper Ludacris, for his contributions to the game. But apparently, the night went sour…real quick after he accepted his award. Allegedly.
According to Atlanta photog FreddyO, once Scarface exited the stage after giving his acceptance speech, he was supposedly ARRESTED. Why? Well, we hear it’s because he had an active warrant out against him and was not suppose to leave the state of Texas. Yikes.
Here’s what possibly went down via FreddyO:
After Scarface exited the stage heading back to the celebrity trailers there were 10 sherriffs waiting to arrest him. Sources revealed that Scarface had a warrant and he was not suppose to leave the State of Texas. Scarface was so concerned about accepting his award and not disappointing his fans he risked being arrested. Snoop was back stage when Scarface was arrested and was upset that; the great moment ended on a sour note. The incident resulted in the show being delayed.
As of now, there aren’t any other reports of Scarface’s alleged arrest. We also haven’t come across any YBF artists addressing the alleged arrest, but we’ll keep you posted on any new developments, if true.
We still salute Scarface for his contributions to the game!
