Lil Scrappy

My Arrest Was a

BIG MISTAKE

Lil Scrappy is STILL behind bars following his arrest in ATL yesterday ... and it's all because he failed to check in with his probation officer ... TMZ has learned.

We broke the story, Scrappy was locked up in Georgia yesterday for violating his probation stemming from a 2008 marijuana possession case.

But nearly 2 weeks before he was arrested, Scrappy filed documents with the DeKalb County Superior Court, begging the judge to recall the warrant for his arrest.

In the docs, Scrappy admits he failed to check in with his probation officer on August 9, 2012 ... but says it was an honest mistake because he had been on non-reporting status for 1.5 years and didn't know a check-in date had been scheduled.

Scrappy insists he has otherwise been a model probationer and wants his arrest warrant recalled ASAP.

The judge hadn't ruled on Scrappy's request by the time the rapper had a run-in with police yesterday, which is why he was arrested and taken to jail.

Scrappy is expected to go in front of a judge sometime in the near future ... but for now, he remains behind bars.

Scrappy's rep tells TMZ the rapper's lawyer is trying to resolve the legal matters and get Scrappy out of jail.

I love how these black rappers always blame other people for their failures in life. When they are not rapping, snorting coke, shooting each other, raping girls, and bragging about their money they are blaming people for their f- ups. No personal responsibility.

Here we go again. Another rapper in trouble. These people are horrible role models. And unfortunately, if they want to be or not... the young generation does view them as role models. I was just curious, so I went back about 5 pages on TMZ to see what other rapper stories are out there to show what kid of violent people they are. This is what I found.
Little Scrappy – arrest in 2008 for marijuana and now in jail for violating his parole. The rapper Gunplay says he wants to kill 50 Cent. Rick Ross and Young Jeezy – BET brawl and reports of gun fire. The Game getting booted from Lil Wayne’s birthday for a club brawl. Sean Kingston ordered to pay 77K for a mansion he trashed. So sad.

Well, I assume a "run in" with the cops, while on probation, would be enough to get you a lift to the clink regardless of a probation violation anyway. Why DID our wittle skwappy have a run in with the popos anyway? Surely it was a misunderstanding and racially motivated, but just cuious.... What did our wittle price do?

Anyone who calls themselves Lil Scrappy deserves whatever comes their way. I'm still kind of perplexed that all this was over pot? Wow.

What's Little Scraps, was that it? Going to do if they don't let him out. Ok, I got my dailey dose of another rap clown. I guess he had to learn like Chipmunk Brown, that you have to get in trouble in the rap world for recognition. Litte Bitch.
