Joe Budden was arrested right before he was scheduled to hop on stage…all over a $75 ticket?!?
Rapper Joe Budden was arrested just hours before a concert in NYC yesterday … and according to Budden … it was all over a $75 parking ticket.
A rep for Budden tells TMZ … cops showed up at a pre-concert meet-and-greet and informed Joe about a warrant out for his arrest due to an unpaid traffic ticket.
Budden’s rep says … the original fine was only $75 … but cops still decided to arrest Joe and took him back to the station where he was booked and processed.
According to the rep, Budden has since been released from jail and insists Joe has “handled the matter.”
I’m lilD, and that’s the Word Eye Heard. Either the cops are really mean, or you’re reallybroke.
