The fact that Lil Scrappy has been on probation is no big secret to fans of Love And Hip Hip: Atlanta, for the most part, his fear of violating his probation (the result of a conviction for marijuana in 2008) is what kept him in line during the season. But as he tweeted earlier today, Scrappy has been arrested and locked up, and according to TMZ, it’s all because he violated his probation.
Though the details of what he did to warrant the arrest are unclear, we’ll bring you more information as it comes. Below is his fiancee, Erica Dixon‘s reaction to the events of the day.
[UPDATE]: TMZ posted that Scrappy was arrested yesterday for failing to check in with his probation officer at a scheduled appointment. They report:
Scrappy was locked up in Georgia yesterday for violating his probation stemming from a 2008 marijuana possession case.
But nearly 2 weeks before he was arrested, Scrappy filed documents with the DeKalb County Superior Court, begging the judge to recall the warrant for his arrest.
In the docs, Scrappy admits he failed to check in with his probation officer on August 9, 2012 … but says it was an honest mistake because he had been on non-reporting status for 1.5 years and didn’t know a check-in date had been scheduled.
