Yung Berg Busted for Weapons and Weed

8/10/2008 1:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Yung BergIt should be no surprise that someone who was signed on DMX's label has been arrested.

Rapper Yung Berg was busted early yesterday morning in New York City after police investigated a complaint by a limo driver.

Sources say a limo driver reported a dispute with five passengers, and when police investigated the complaint, they busted Berg and his buddies on a pile of charges.

Cops say Berg, real name Christian Ward, was charged with criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of marijuana and menacing. The arrest was first reported by Urban411.

# 24: That's the problem!! It's all about the money to them, it's not about the fans or making music that will still be heard in another 20 yrs! None of the so called artists are about REAL ENTERTAINING anymore!!

Something is wrong with society when you allow ex-cons and law breakers the ability to make this kind of money.

I'll say it again. The real money should go to those who make a difference.

Rap/hip-hop is a cancer on decent society. It's rotting young minds.

I agree with an earlier poster. Why come on here and entertain ignorance? Anyone who posts uneducated, ignorant, racist, stereotypical comments demonstrates a lack of knowledge caused by mental laziness. That is the only reason they are even here posting that garbage because they know this and want to feel better about themselves; so they put down others. They are not worthy of a response. Let them vent.

Regarding the topic at hand, I'm glad karma caught up to self-hating Yung Berg. Maybe he can get one of those "red-bones" to come bail his self-loathing behind out of jail. This dude is like the young version of Uncle Ruckus from "The Boondocks".

Dude, shut up!    

It's funny how websites reject your comments, but let other whites bash and talk. Like this airhead above me. Nick Sunset? Cornball.

Remember when he made that RACIST, IGNORANT comment about dark-skinned black girls? Bastard should fry in jail.


P.S. TMZ stop asking people to validate comments. It's annoying.

UPDATE TRICK TRICK ATTACKS YOUNG BERG
NOT ONLY DID YUNG BERG GET ROBBED FOR HIS $70,000 TRANSFORMER CHAIN HE ALSO GOT ROBBED FOR HIS 7 ROW BRACLET, AND HIS POCKETS WERE RAN BY TRICK TRICK AND HIS GOON SQUAD. SOURCES SAY THAT PETER ARABO OWNER OF PLAN B NIGHTCLUB STILL HAS THE CHAIN IN HIS POSSESSION. WE ALSO KNOW THAT YUNG BERG GOT PUNCHED OVER 20 TIMES, AND GOT THE NEXT FLIGHT FROM DETROIT TO CHICAGO BACK. HE DID NOT PREFORM AT THE HOT 102.7 SUMMER JAMZ. INSIDE SOURCES TELL US THAT BOW WOW CALLED TRICK TRICK AND SAID THANKED HIM FOR DOING IT AND SAID “IT WAS ABOUT TIME”. THERE IS ALSO A RUMOR GOING AROUND THAT YUNG BERG SPITED ON TRICK TRICK IN CHICAGO AWHILE AGO. THAT RUMOR IS FALSE. THIS WAS THE FIRST ENCOUNTER WITH TRICK TRICK AND YUNG BERG. IT HAS BEEN REPORTED THAT YUNG BERG WAS SENT OUTSIDE PLAN B NIGHT CLUB IN HIS BOXERS. BEING STRIPED OF ALL HIS CLOTHES & JEWELERY.
