Lil' Scrappy -- one of the stars of the VH1 show "Love & Hip Hop" -- was arrested at a Georgia gas station yesterday after getting into a fight with a guy who allegedly disrespected his girlfriend, TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement tells TMZ ... cops received a call about a brawl going down inside the gas station around 2:33 AM. We're told an off-duty police officer from Atlanta happened to be at the same gas station and sprang into action -- successfully breaking up the fight.

When on-duty cops arrived to the scene ... Scrappy and the other man were arrested for disorderly conduct and hauled to a nearby police station.

FYI -- the other guy in the fight was Kenny Rogers ... not "The Gambler" Kenny Rogers ... just a random guy who also happens to share the same name as the country legend.

We're told Scrappy was very cooperative once in custody -- and was released a short time later.

We spoke with Scrappy who insists Kenny Rogers was the aggressor -- "He was calling my girlfriend names and then put his hands on me ... so I had to lay them paws on him."

Scrappy's lawyer Mawuli Mel Davis tells us there's video that proves Scrappy was acting in self-defense.

Scrappy says he plans to cooperate with law enforcement moving forward -- and is now trying to focus on the next season of his reality show.

This kid needs to learn some emotional impulse control. Being "disrespected" is very subjective and his behavior neither protects womanhood nor promotes manhood.

You are too big and too old to be called 'LiL' anything. Come up with a new name. BTW, any chance either party was sober at 2:33 am.?

devil's advocate    

I'm sure he's violated his probation is some way. He needs to learn that sticks and stones may break his bones, but the bone he will be getting up the ass when he goes back to prison will definitely hurt him. Send him back to prison. He could stop smoking pot to keep his freedom and apparently can't stay out of trouble of any kind.
