Houston legend Scarface is free from an arrest in Atlanta last week.
Scarface, real name Brad Jordan, was released on Friday from jail where he was being held for non-payment of child support.
According to a statement: “First and foremost I would like to thank my supporters for their concern during my recent arrest in Atlanta. While we have resolved the issue I would like to correct some misinformation. The amount reported that was owed is inaccurate and I had no knowledge about there being an arrest order for me as I have traveled to Atlanta many times; with the latest trip being in September to perform at the One Music Festival. Due to the nature of the case (having a minor child involved), I will make no further comment at this time.”
The incident happened when Scarface was being honored with the “I Am Hip-Hop” award at the 2015 BET Hip-Hop Awards.
Several Texas marshals were waiting to arrest him after he accepted his award, which ending up delaying the show.
