It all started last October, when Berg was in Miami for the BET Awards and cops responded to an altercation call at the hotel he was staying at. A woman claimed unwanted touching from the Love and Hip Hop star and someone in his entourage. Once police arrived, they discovered two blunts, which typically doesn’t result in arrest. However, a nine year-old warrant for his arrest was in their system for failing to appear on another drug possession charge. So, Berg was arrested.
The rapper was ultimately released from jail and scheduled to appear in court on the matter, but he never showed. What could have been a simple misdemeanor may result in more jail time for his absence.
The arrest is the latest in a number of runs-ins with the law for Yung Berg. His most controversial was in 2014, when he was arrested in NYC for allegedly assaulting his then-girlfriend Masika Tucker. The arrest resulted in him being booted from the popular VH1 series, Love & Hip-Hop.
