Scott Storch

Arrested for Coke in Vegas

Hip-hop producer Scott Storch mug shot
10:38 AM PST -- Storch tried to hide a baggie of cocaine in a trash can at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Vegas before cops arrived ... this according to the police report, obtained by TMZ.

In the report, the arresting officer says cops fished out the baggie after receiving a tip from hotel security ... and discovered it contained 2.7 grams of blow.
Hip-hop producer Scott Storch -- a recovering drug addict -- was arrested in Vegas earlier this month for possession of cocaine ... TMZ has learned.

According to law enforcement, Storch was arrested at a Vegas hotel around 8:30 AM on Feb. 4.

Sources tell us ... the arrest went down after an employee called police to complain that Storch wouldn't pay for his room.

When cops arrived to the scene, we're told officers discovered Storch was in possession of cocaine. Storch was hauled to a nearby police station ... where he was released on $5k bond.

Storch -- who has worked with stars like Beyoncé, 50 Cent, Dr. Dre, Snoop, Pink and more -- famously blew a $30 million fortune after getting hooked on drugs back in 2006. He eventually checked into rehab and has been working on his recovery ever since.  

Scott was out in L.A. this weekend acting like nothing ever happened (below) -- casually joking about one of his former artists, Brooke Hogan, while smoking a cigar.

Don't report on people where you have to read the entire article to find out who they are. Just stick to famous people please.

Wow, 30 million dollars. A key of cocaine cost $ 23,000 dollars. He couldn't have blown all his money on drugs. That is ridiculous TMZ. The numbers don't add up. Maybe, he made some bad financial decisions also. Because, you earn $ 30 million dollars that doesn't mean you are taking that home. The IRS get their half too, no matter who you are...

In your piece you call him a "recovering' addict. He's not trying to 'recover', he's just conning everyone around him to believe he's 'in recovery' when he's in full blown addict con job status, full blown conning all these hip hopping deadbeats in a line to here and Detroit and back who all wanna be dope smoking bling wearing society decaying rappers.
