Just moments after being introduced by Ludacris to accept the I Am Hip-Hop Award at the taping of the 2015 BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta, Brad Jordan, aka Scarface, was arrested by authorities for failure to pay child support.
Jordan, 44, was released Friday, Oct. 16, and issued this statement to press:
“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.”
