“Mr. Mississippi” himself David Banner was recently arrested for a heated face off with a bouncer at Ozio Restaurant & Lounge in Washington D.C.. It’s said the altercation was sparked by one of the rappers entourage being denied entrance in to the establishment. Hiphopdx.com reports:
“The incident erupted after a member of Banner’s entourage was denied entry to the club, according to witnesses. A disgruntled Banner then went off.
Citing the police report, TMZ states that Banner clenched a fist and told the bouncer, “I got you, nigga, I got you. You a sell-out, nigga. I got money.”
It’s also alleged that Banner hurled money and credit cards at the bouncer during the exchange.
When a responding officer subsequently intervened in an attempt to break things up, David Banner is reported to have said: “I don’t give a fuck about no police!”
The rapper-producer subsequently got arrested for inciting a fight.”
We think this is a simple case of pride and ego gone too far. Also, the police could have let him off with a warning.. P.S. Cop Banner’s “The God Box” album if you’re in need of some real hip-hop!
