Benzino Arrested For Outstanding Warrant


Benzino recently had an unfortunate run-in with the law. The Hip hop executive, record producer, and former Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star has been out of the spotlight for a while until now. TMZ reports Saturday in Atlanta he was arrested for an outstanding warrant.

According to their report, Benzino was parked in the middle of the street blocking lanes, so a passing cop ran his plates. There was a hit for a warrant because Benzino allegedly received a traffic ticket for driving without insurance back in April and never showed up to court. The officer on the scene told Benzino why he ran the plates, but the Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars star is claiming that racism played a part in his arrest.

“I am feeling faint.” He kept asking for water, but the officer told him once they got to the jail he could get something to drink. When they arrived, they contacted an ambulance to make sure he wasn’t ill. Benzino rejected the offer to be taken to the hospital but did tell officers that his handcuffs were too tight.
