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 ...

I saw Tyga tonight right after he was released from jail. He was at the Bellagio Hotel's Casino with a large entourage including three bodyguards and his girlfriend. His girlfriend was more than happy to take my phone and shoot a picture of the two of us. A little later his largest bodyguard tackled a fan who was bothering Tyga. The fan was tossed out of the casino by hotel security. They interviewed the bodyguard but did not throw him out of the casino. I was able to take some video from my phone of the fight. After the fight Tyga and his entire entourage left in white and red Rolls-Royces.

Thats what he gets for stealing money from 2 events in San Diego! Karmas a bitch, and we still want our money back. He got paid and didnt stick to the contract. Didn't show up on time and didnt perform and said they closed the event before he could get in. Only cuz he came an hour before closing.

i bet these stupid white people is commenting on this , well if you don't know. Tyga is a rapper from La. When he was young he had a resemblance to Tiger Woods, but he changed it to Tyga because it stands for Thank You God always. He worked with adele , Fall Out Boys, The XX , & Lil Wayne just to name a few. BYE

WHO? Never heard of him... has he got a buddy at TMZ? Is this how he's got more exposure than he's probably ever had... sounds like another idiot to tell your kids not to end up like... I wish the Hip Hop greats would start some kind of school to teach these wannabe's a few things before they decide to start having police run ins - traffic violations are hardly going to add to his Street Cred are they? smh
