Kidz In The Hall Rapper Arrested has confirmed the weekend arrest of Chicago rapper Naledge, one half of duo Kidz In The Hall.


The 25-year-old artist, born Jabari Miles Evans, was taken into custody in Tempe, Arizona early Saturday morning (July 26) following an incident at a local nightclub where he and partner DJ Double-O were scheduled to perform.


While details surround the incident remain unclear, Tempe police spokesman Sgt. Steve Carbajal said the arrest took place shortly after a fight broke out at the Cherry Lounge & Pit.


According to a police report, Naledge was physically removed from the scene after refusing several police commands to leave a crime scene.


He was charged with violating a city code of obstructing justice.


The rapper was released from the Tempe City Jail after posting $500 bail. No one was hurt during the altercation.


Throughout the rest of the summer, The Kidz In The Hall are part of a packed Rock The Bells Festival line up, which this year includes Nas, A Tribe Called Quest, and The Pharcyde, who have reunited at least for the full run of the festival.


Their appearance in Tempe was not part of the Festival.
