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, our sources has learned.
Law enforcement tells our sources … 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.
