OG rapper Scarface was reportedly arrested last night after accepting the ‘I Am Legend Award’ at the 2015 BET Hip Hop Awards.
According to photographer FreddyO, Scarface left the stage after being presented his award by Ludacris and cops were waiting for him backstage.
Word on the street is that Scarface had an active warrant out for his arrest and wasn’t supposed to leave the state of Texas.
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.
No one else has said anything regarding Scarface’s arrest, but in the rap game we’re sure getting arrested at an awards show further contributes to his ‘legendary’ status in some way.
