Lil Scrappy agreed to join the cast of VH1’s hit reality show “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” and the rapper hoped the popularity the show has enjoyed since season one will help him make a return to the forefront of the southern rap scene. While Scrappy has been enjoying the perks of returning to the spotlight, it hasn’t been drama free in the least bit. Not only is his very on and off romance with his baby mama Erica Dixon now the target of public scrutiny, but so is his record of legal troubles. Scrappy is currently on probation for an altercation that happened a couple of years ago, but his most recent arrests made the possibility of jail time more probable. The reality star was recently arrested for refusing to take a drug test, but he was able to duck jail time in exchange for a stint for rehab to cure him of his “addiction” to weed.
Although he escaped jail time just months ago for the drug test issue, he got into an altercation at a local gas station recently over his current girlfriend “Basketball Wives LA” personality Bambi.
Lil Scrappy claims a young man spoke to Bambi in a rather disrespectful way and was the aggressor in the confrontation which forced him to defend himself. Some sites reported he could possibly be looking at serving jail time considering he is still on probation. But his lawyer Mawuli Mel Davis says the recent arrest won’t affect his probation. Davis tells Rumor Fix Lil Scrappy was given a citation for disorderly conduct and reported to probation on Wednesday morning where it was determined that the incident will not affect the remaining four months of his probation.
