ARRESTED IN VEGAS

1/9/2012 5:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tyga mugshot
Rapper Tyga was locked up in Las Vegas this weekend ... after cops discovered the 22-year-old had an active warrant out for his arrest ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... Tyga -- real name Michael Stevenson -- was initially flagged on a routine traffic violation ... but during the stop, cops discovered the warrant stemming from 4 other traffic incidents.

According to KSNV in Nevada ... Tyga's prior issues include driving without a license, registration violations and unlawful acts of financial responsibility.

The "Rack City" and "Coconut Juice" rapper was hauled to the Clark County Detention Center where he was booked and tossed behind bars. He was released the next day on his own recognizance.

Story developing ...

why is it that all these dumb-ass rapperes with either warrants or drugs & guns in their cars get pulled over initially for traffic violations? if I knew I was riding dirty like that, I'd be obeying every little traffic law possible

I suppose he went to the school for junior rappers. Hat on backwards, check. Gold chains and rings, check. Tattoos on the neck and face, check. Stupid name, check. The real story here, though, is he should have been arrested just for wearing that jacket.

Well he was wearing a tiger skinned jacket before TMZ put up his mug shot. Lesson to kids, stay in school and you will learn the proper way to spell tiger.

Tyga is human, I thought that worthless auto-tune talking was coming from a computer. I'll be damn, does that mean Drake is not a computer either?

Who the f*ck is this character? Honestly, it seems like one rapper gets shot in a drive-by and three more rappers with even more idiotic names as the last spring up.
