Lil Scrappy was arrested for fighting at a gas station in Atlanta. Supposedly someone was calling his new girlfriend names, and Lil Scrappy had to put his “paws” on em’. Check out the video.

TMZ reports:

Law enforcement tells TMZ … cops received a call about a brawl going down inside the gas station around 2:33 AM. We’re told an off-duty police officer from Atlanta happened to be at the same gas station and sprang into action — successfully breaking up the fight.

We’re told Scrappy was very cooperative once in custody — and was released a short time later.

We spoke with Scrappy who insists Kenny Rogers was the aggressor — “He was calling my girlfriend (Bambi) names and then put his hands on me … so I had to lay them paws on him.”

Scrappy says he plans to cooperate with law enforcement moving forward — and is now trying to focus on the next season of his reality show.
