Lil Scrappy stabbed in fight, arrested
Lil’ Scrappy was arrested on Friday (July 18) after getting into an altercation with his sister’s boyfriend.

The rapper, whose real name is Darryl Richardson, was taken to jail in DeKalb County, GA after police responded to a call about a fight in the Stone Mountain area.

Richardson was stabbed during the fight but his condition was listed as stable and he was subsequently released from jail after posting $1,500 bond yesterday (July 20).

His mother told that he was stabbed trying to protect his sister from her boyfriend, with whom she had had an argument.

He was arrested for felony possession of marijuana, felony possession of a firearm/knife, and obstruction of officers.

Lil’ Scrappy was one of the first acts to sign to Lil’ Jon’s label BME Recordings.
