According to court documents, he will be held until he faces a judge later today. Petty's troubles began after he got pulled over in Beverly Hills in November.

Cautious Beverly Hills PD ran a background check on the Black man driving an expensive vehicle, and determined Petty was a registered sex offender in New York state but had not registered in the state of California as required.

He was arrested and released on a $20,000 bond in November.

Petty's rap sheet includes a 1995 conviction for first-degree attempted rape. He served almost 4 years in NY state prison for the crime and was required to register as a sex offender. If convicted on the federal charge for failure to register, Kenneth, 37, faces up to 10 years in prison.

Nicki, 37, apologized after Petty shoved a Trinidadian singer who got too close to Nicki during Carnival in her native Trinidad and Tobago last month.

"Allyuh like sh-t eh? I go cus all yuh real fkn stink yuh know? [Kenneth] don't understand about our culture. I apologize on his behalf. He's always in security mode. All love. Love my country to death. Love my [people] to death. Period. … I should've told him it's a very comfortable family atmosphere. He's never been to a carnival in his life. Not even in Brooklyn, babe."

Boxer Gervonta Davis was arrested and charged with assault after he got rough with his baby mama during a celebrity basketball game in Miami.

The Coral Gables Police Department announced Davis's arrest on Tuesday, after a viral video showed the champion boxer snatching his baby mama, Andretta, by her neck during an argument and dragging her out of a gym. The couple was in Miami to attend the Super Bowl.

"As a result of an ongoing investigation after being notified through social media and the victim, on February 1, 2020, (Davis) was observed battering his former girlfriend (with) whom have a child together," Coral Gables police said in a statement to ESPN.

Prior to his arrest, Davis addressed the incident during an Instagram story, saying he didn't assault his baby mama - he simply corrected her when she talked back to him and showed out in public.

"I never once hit her, yeah, I was aggressive and told her come on.. that's the mother of my child. I would never hurt her," Davis said.

Davis is undefeated as a professional boxer.

Rapper Trick Daddy is furious at the Internet for making fun of his mugshot taken after his arrest for DUI and cocaine possession charges in Miami on Saturday.

Social media users made countless memes of the rapper's mugshot which went viral on Saturday. The jokes were endless as social media clowned the 45-year-old rapper, whose real name is Maurice Young.

Young took to Facebook to say he was not pleased with all the jokes at his expense. Young's appearance is caused by his lupus diagnosis.

"Let me get this right .. you lie on me .. make fun of the fact that I have lupus ... and all this just for likes .. thank god im strong .. everything is funny until it hits close to home .. my feelings don't hurt easily I'm too worried about waking up tomorrow."

Young bonded out of jail on Sunday. He was spotted later that day behind the counter at his Sunday's Eatery soul food restaurant at 2675 NW 207th in Miami Gardens.

Trick Daddy, a native of Miami's Liberty City neighborhood, is best known for his hit song "Naan Nigga", featuring Miami rapper Trina (1998). They currently appear in the VH1 reality TV series Love and Hip-Hop: Miami.

Rapper Trick Daddy was arrested on DUI and cocaine possession charges in Miami, Florida early Saturday.

According to an arrest affidavit, Trick Daddy, 45, was taken into custody by a Miami-Dade police officer responding to a report of a driver running red lights and hitting street signs in a Range Rover.

When the officer approached the driver's side, he noticed the driver "appeared to be asleep behind the wheel."

The cop awakened the driver by banging on the car window. The man, identified by his driver's license as Maurice Samuel Young, told the officer he had left a nightclub in Miami Gardens.

The affidavit stated that Young told the officer he had about five drinks before he left the club and that he was dropping someone off before heading home.

The cop noted Young's slurred speech, bloodshot, watery eyes, and a strong odor of alcohol on his breath.

Young failed a field sobriety test, which he did not complete, according to the affidavit.

A search of his belongings at the Hammocks District Station on 142nd Avenue yielded a small amount of cocaine inside a dollar bill.

The "Take It to da House" rapper was also wanted on an outstanding warrant for driving under the influence.

He was booked into the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional center around 7:30 a.m. Saturday, according to Yahoo News.

His bond was set at $5,000 on the cocaine possession charge and $1,000 on the DUI charge, according to Yahoo News.

Rapper DaBaby is still locked up in a Miami jail after a violent encounter with a local club promoter who allegedly owed him $10,000. The altercation was caught on the hotel's surveillance cameras.

The unidentified promoter told police the rapper robbed him of $80 and his iPhone 7 before pouring apple juice on him outside the posh Novotol Hotel on Brickell Avenue in Miami.

The rapper appeared in a Miami courtroom on Friday, where he waived extradition to Texas. By waiving extradition, DaBaby agrees to be transported by sheriff's deputies to the state of Texas to face charges there.

Meanwhile, there is the matter of $250,000 in cash that DaBaby says he left in his Miami hotel room when he was arrested. He told Judge Mindy Glazer about the money.

A video that surfaced online Friday, allegedly shows the rapper robbing the promoter in front of the hotel.

It isn't clear if DaBaby, real name Jonathan Kirk, was a guest at the hotel when the alleged robbery went down.

The promoter said DaBaby and his crew assaulted him because they believed he shorted the rapper $10,000 following a performance at a Miami nightclub.

The promoter allegedly gave DaBaby $20,000 upfront for a performance that was scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 2. DaBaby was arrested by Miami police that same day, and charged with battery, a misdemeanor. He is being held on $1,500 bail.

The 28-year-old "Suge" rapper is also being held on an outstanding warrant out of Dallas, Texas, where he is charged with engaging in criminal activity.

Rapper DaBaby was arrested on weapons and drug charges following his sold out concert in Charlotte, North Carolina on Monday, Dec. 23.

The "Suge" rapper, real name Jonathan Lyndale Kirk, was detained for carrying a concealed weapon and being in possession of a small amount of marijuana, according to local TV station WSOC-TV.

Taking to his Instagram Stories following his release from custody, the rap star hit back at authorities for targeting him whenever he plays in the area, writing: "Dirty a*s police department try to take me to jail every time I got a show in the city."

The news of his arrest came days after DaBaby was forced to deny his nudes leaked on Twitter.com. The racy video clip showed a man exposing himself while rapping along to DaBaby's music.

But the man in the video was not the same guy - alleged to be DaBaby - in another racy video being shopped around to the blogs.

The person sent a screenshot from the video to prove its authenticity. When I asked for more proof, the individual sent a short 5-second video clip (for research purposes).

Your auntie informed the individual that Sandrarose.com is a family-friendly blog. Subsequently, all communications, videos, images, etc., pertaining to that discussion were deleted.

Your auntie was impressed enough to make DaBaby your Morning Wood on Friday, but some of you ladies are very hard to please.

When Black Twitter exploded in reaction to "DaBaby's sex tape," I assumed it was the same video.

I clicked the link (like most of you), but I immediately realized it wasn't the same guy in both videos.

DaBaby himself confirmed the eggplant wasn't his. The Internet later identified the guy as sex worker @Jrippher.

Damon Dash was arrested in New York on Wednesday, Nov. 20, after racking up more than $400,000 in outstanding child support.

The 48-year-old rap mogul stayed one step ahead of the police for several years after failing to make payments to ex-girlfriend Cindy Morales, with whom he shares a son, and his former wife, designer Rachel Roy, pictured above with one of their two daughters.

Complicating the troubled mogul's financial difficulties is his fiancee, Raquel Horn (pictured), is pregnant with his fourth child.

Dash reportedly fled the Big Apple and relocated to the West Coast to avoid arrest, but he returned to NYC this week to try and clear up his legal troubles.

According to TMZ, Dash appeared in court to plead with a judge for leniency, claiming he was so broke he couldn't afford $2,400 in fees.

Dash told the court he had no income and his current business ventures were not turning a profit, according to WENN.com.

But the police were unsympathetic. They clapped the handcuffs on him as he headed into a courthouse on Wednesday to settle a child support bill to Rachel Roy.

"We've been looking to arrest him since 2015," Sheriff Joseph Fucito told the New York Post's Page Six. Fucito said Dash had 2 warrants for his arrest.

The first felony warrant, relating to child support for Morales, was issued in April, 2015, while a second warrant was issued by a Bronx Family Court judge in March after Dash skipped payments to Roy.

According to TMZ, Dash was taken into custody and escorted to Brooklyn, where he handed over money for the balance of his debt. He was subsequently released from custody.

Dash rose from humble beginnings sweeping up barbershops and selling newspapers as a teenager to co-founding Roc-A-Fella Records and Rocawear clothing with Jay-Z as a young adult.

He earned tens of millions of dollars as a music and fashion mogul over the course of his career.

Fulton County Sheriff's Office

Reality star Eva Marcille's ex Kevin McCall was arrested following a scuffle at the Fulton County Justice Center Tower on Tuesday in Atlanta.

According to Fox 5 News, McCall, of West Los Angeles, entered the courthouse while live-streaming on his cell phone. When a deputy sergeant with the Fulton County Sheriff's Office ordered him to turn off the livestream, McCall, 34, continued to stream on his cell phone and "used profane and abusive language" toward the deputy sergeant.

McCall's face allegedly hit the deputy sergeant's hand when the officer attempted to take McCall into custody.

When other deputies piled on to assist the sergeant, officials say the sergeant and McCall fell down one of the courthouse's escalators. Neither man was injured during the fall.

McCall was charged with felony 2nd-degree criminal damage to property, misdemeanor obstruction of a law enforcement officer, misdemeanor terroristic threats, misdemeanor disorderly conduct, and misdemeanor simple assault, according to Fox 5.

He is being held in jail without bail.

Pasco County Sheriff's Office

The Pasco County Sheriff's Department was forced to admit their error after mislabelling actress Stacey Dash as "white" on their arrest report.

The 'Clueless' star pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor domestic battery charge, after she was arrested for allegedly slapping and scratching her husband, attorney Jeffrey Marty at their New Port Richey, Florida home on Sunday.

The actress was bonded out of jail by her husband on Monday morning, Sept. 30.

When filling out the arrest report, a deputy mistakenly labeled Dash - who has a Black father and Mexican mother - as "white" on the booking form.

The unfortunate error resulted in a fierce genetics debate on social media. Black Twitter users, who previously revoked Dash's Black card for being a Trump supporter, were now angry that Dash appeared to abandon the Black community.

As the debate raged on the blogs on Wednesday, a spokesperson for the Pasco Sheriff's Department admitted the mistake, explaining:

"Stacey Dash was never asked her race by the arresting deputy, nor did she volunteer any information about her race. The arresting deputy assumed that she was Hispanic.

"However, the Pasco Sheriff's Office follows the Department of Justice Uniform Crime Reporting standards and, according to the DOJ reporting requirements the only allowable races are: Asian/Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, Black/African American, American Indian/Alaskan Native, Unknown, or White."

Hispanic and Mexican are not races. But the sheriff's representative added that reports do list a Hispanic option if a deputy fills out the booking form by hand. The option is not available on digital (online) copies, so her race will likely not be updated.

Deputies also mistook the star's middle name for her surname, incorrectly calling her Stacey Dash Lauretta. This led to speculation that the booking sheet was Photoshopped.

Dash has been given access to a public defender because she applied for indigent status and can't afford a lawyer.

Dash has fallen on hard times since she was fired as a political pundit on Fox News in 2017.

Stacey Dash said she was Caucasian during the booking process following her arrest for domestic battery on her husband in Pasco County, Florida on Sunday.

Dash was arrested and charged after fighting with her husband, Jeffrey Marty, a 44-year-old attorney, and his 15-year-old daughter.

WENN.com

Dash entered a written plea of not guilty. She was bonded out of jail by her husband on Monday, Sept. 30.

The 52-year-old actress, who is mixed race, correctly identified herself as Caucasian during the booking process.

WENN.com

Dash, pictured with a friend on Melrose Avenue in Hollywood, California, was raised in a white environment. She doesn't share in the Black experience and she has never claimed to be Black.

But Black Twitter has a problem with mixed race people who don't identify as Black.

One Twitter user wrote: "I trade Stacey Dash for Rachel Dolezal. This heifer is trash. #WhiteStacey".

Another user tweeted: "Stacey comes from a Bajan, Mexican, Black background. Now you understand why I am always skeptical about these people with dual allegiances trying to speak for Foundational Black Americans."

FayesVision/WENN.com

The attitude of Black Twitter seems out of touch with reality at a time when mixed race people are embracing their individuality.

There is even a new show, Mixed-ish, a spinoff of Black-ish, starring Tracee Ellis Ross, who is mixed race.

On Sunday, the Clueless star was arrested for assaulting her breadwinner husband. She has filed for indigent status and is asking for a public defender to represent her in court.

According to TMZ, a Florida judge signed off on the request for a public defender after asking Dash to provide proof of her income.

Richie Buxo / Splash News

In audio of a 911 call to the Pasco County Sheriff, Dash said that her husband and his three minor children conspired to have her arrested.

The 52-year-old actress was charged with domestic battery for scratching and slapping Marty's face during an argument at their Pasco County condominium on Sunday.

Dash said she, Marty and his children - ages 15, 14 and 10 - were all arguing when she pushed his 15-year-old daughter. She accused Marty, who is a lawyer, of putting her in a chokehold.

She said he advised his three children to lie to the police about the incident.

Marty, 44, can be heard in the background yelling, "I can't believe you did this."

When police arrived on the scene, Dash was arrested and booked into the county jail. She has since been released on $500 bond.

Stacey Dash tried to impress a cop who showed up at her Florida condominium to arrest her following a domestic dispute with her husband, Jeffrey Marty, on Sunday night.

According to a police report, Dash, 52, slapped and scratched Marty's face during an argument that escalated out of control. But her manager said Dash was acting in self-defense after Marty choked her out.

The actress was arrested and charged with domestic battery. The Pasco County Sheriff's deputies wear body cams. So it wasn't long before cam footage of Dash's arrest surfaced online.

After asking, "Am I being arrested?", Dash starts to cry while being escorted to a squad car. The arresting officer asked the Bronx native where she was born and what she did for a living.

Dash, who was clad in only a long t-shirt and a pair of panties, replied that she was an actress.

"Like TV or...?"

"Both. TV and film. I did a film called Clueless," Dash said. But the cop apparently never heard of it.

"I was a Fox News contributor," Dash added. To which the cop replied, "Oh, okay."

Dash is best known for her role as Dionne Marie Davenport in the 1995 comedy film Clueless, also starring Alicia Silverstone.

She is universally hated in the Black community for her staunch support of U.S. President Donald Trump.
