Tyga

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 ...

just because you haven't heard of him doesn't make the story irrelevant.

First of all, I dont' know who the hell this moron is.

Secondly, i'm not racist, but what's with black people and funny ass names? Are they deliberately trying to dumb down the English language or dumb down America with these silly names? LaShonda, LaQueefa, Jamarcus, and now "Tyger". Can we spell Tyger correctly? what the hell is the significance? What next? Lyion? Babune? Munkee? Simply uncivilized.

Damn, tmz, what are you turning into and where do you find these lowlifes?? How abour separating your "gossip" into categories for lame sports stories, bottom feeders nobody ever heard of, reality "star" bottom feeders, redundant rapper stories and slacker boy penis stories, etc. And a very rare category for an actual star with talent.
