Why Lil Scrappy Is Behind Bars
Rapper Lil Scrappy is behind bars in an Atlanta area jail after refusing to re-submit a fresh urine sample as part of his probation.
Back in March, Scrappy reportedly turned in a urine sample that, according to officials, was cold and possibly tampered with. Authorities asked the Love and Hip-Hop: Atlanta star for another sample, but Scrappy refused.
A warrant was eventually put out for the rapper’s arrest, but it looks like Scrappy took the high road and just turned himself in. The rapper tweeted early Tuesday morning that his main concern with being locked up was leaving his daughter:
“Only thing is I gotta leave my lil one. It hurt so bad when I told her where daddy was going. She was too sad, but she said, ‘Daddy, it’s gone be OK.”
When a fan asked Scrappy how long he might be in jail, the rapper tweeted back, “I don’t know, up to the judge.”
HipHollywood reached out to Scrappy’s camp, and are still waiting on word back.
