Former “L&HH” Star Benzino Arrested For Outstanding Warrant
Former “Love & Hip Hop” star Benzino was arrested over the weekend for failing to appear in court for a traffic violation.
Law enforcement shared that Benzino’s car was parked in the middle of the street outside Atlanta on Saturday and was blocking traffic. Cops who spotted his vehicle ran his plates and the car came back with a warrant. Apparently, it stemmed from a ticket he got for not having insurance back in April and he never showed up to address the issue.
Despite that, Benzino believes he was only pulled over because the cops were racist, according to TMZ. The officer claims he explained his reason for checking Benzino’s tag and discovering the warrant, but the former reality star insisted he was being harassed because of his race.
It was said that Benzino became belligerent while being cuffed and even kept using profanity until he arrived to jail. Apparently, he was so upset, medical workers asked him if he wanted to go to the hospital but he declined. He was booked for failure to appear and released.
