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 ...

Dumba55 should've done the 2 weeks for those violations and be done with but he OR'd. What a wuss. Looks like he about to cry in his pix cause he know he about to be fondled by the CO's up in the mug.

...a rapper with a warrant. That's not news. How many rappers are there, who finance these losers? Their devotees are more likely to steal their CDs than legitimately buy them with a follow-up receipt.. so how do they make money?

driving without a license?
registration violations?
unlawful acts of financial responsibility???
What has become of my homey rappers?
Tyga, or as we refer to him at my house, "Little meow meow" is going to lose all his street cred as a rapper.
He could have at least resisted arrest or called the cop a bad name. What is this world coming too........

Why am I not surprised he is a rapper. I guess there is nothing else for an uneducated, anti-social loser to do, except maybe basketball.

I'm not sure what makes a statement more-------his tattooed neck or the tattoos over his eyebrows......regardless, I'm sure there is a hoochie mama out there somewhere who'll do the nasty with him.

To the majority of y'all sorry 51 asses that responded to this young man's run in with the law. Its crazy funny how y'all act as if any of yous are so ******* innocent and never had any problems with the law? The Bible says in John 8:7 said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone. Therefore stop being so Judgmental!!! To the ********* that commented on the spelling of his name, the way he spells his stage name Tyga is an acronym for (Thank You God Always). So before you start to make your comments do you research retard! Peace Haters!

The only time we hear about these losers EVER is on this show/website. Otherwise only their absent parents know they exist. Perhaps TMZ has ties with a music label for advertising?

Nearly everyday it seems TMZ has a story about some obscure rapper being arrested, being in a fight or baby mama drama.
Who are these people and who cares about them?
