Damn. Sometimes if you know you got to pay, you have to figure the best thing to do is not show up at a high profile event if you owe.
Boombox.com reports that Scarface’s honorary tribute at the 2015 BET Hip-Hop Awards ended on a sour note after the rap legend was reportedly arrested backstage after receiving his prestigious I Am Hip-Hop Award on Friday (Oct. 9).
According to photographer/blogger Freddy-O, the Houston rhymer was leaving the stage when reportedly 10 sheriffs approached ‘Face and subsequently arrested him. Insiders informed the blogger that Scarface was taken into custody for an outstanding warrant in the State of Texas for unpaid child support. Freddy-O writes:
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.”
