An Orlando, Florida police officer is the subject

of an internal police investigation, after a show featuring Lil Scrappy at a

local high school turned into chaos.

Video footage of the concert, which took place

at Dr. Phillips High School last weekend, was filmed by Julia Beverly, who heads

up Ozone Magazine. The tape shows Officer

Richard Bailey Jr. shove Lil Scrappy off of the stage and into the crowd.

Bailey claimed that the rappers were on the stage

attempting to "invoke a riot response from the crowd."

Police attempted to subdue the performers on

stage and a fight broke out. Bailey said that Lil Scrappy attempted to stop

him from arresting his manager, Tommy "Serious" Phillips.

The video shows Bailey turning towards Lil Scrappy

and pushing him several feet off the stage. Ironically,

sources stated that Bailey was the blood brother of rapper Smilez of Smilez

and Southstar.

Phillips was arrested and charged with battery

on a law-enforcement officer. He said police brutalized him and Lil Scrappy.

Phillips has contacted the NAACP and said that

formal complaint would be filed pertaining to his arrest and the conditions

in the jail.
