DJ Paul Sentenced For Taser Arrest In NYC

(AllHipHop News) Last October DJ Paul of the Memphis rap group Three Six Mafia was arrested in New York City for a misdemeanor weapons charge. The Academy Award winner was initially stopped by police for carrying an open Corona beer in public. He then admitted that he was also carrying a concealed taser.

TMZ is now reporting that after first pleading “not guilty” to the possession and public drinking charges, Paul struck a deal with the prosecution and pleaded guilty to a lesser disorderly conduct charge.

Paul has been sentenced to 21 hours of community service and has to pay a $125 surcharge. Paul will serve his sentence in his current hometown of Las Vegas at a local soup kitchen.

“They’re all going to be eating a lot of barbecue and garlic butter,” said Paul’s defense attorney Seema Iyer (referring to the rapper/producer’s line of barbecue sauces) according to the New York Post.

DJ Paul BBQ” was started in 2012 and includes both a barbecue rub and sauce available for purchase online.

Back at the time of the arrest Paul explained that he didn’t know that he wasn’t able to carry a taser gun in New York.

“I honestly didn’t know it was illegal. I thought it was at the same level as pepper spray,” Paul told TMZ. “My bodyguard wasn’t around last night, and I was by myself in NYC and anything can happen in the late hours down there.”

DJ Paul released his third solo studio album, A Person of Interest, just days after the arrest.

He has also released numerous projects as part of the legendary rap group Three Six Mafia. Paul and fellow 3-6 member Juicy J won an Oscar for Best Original Song for writing the single “It’s Hard Out Here For A Pimp” from the film Hustle and Flow.

      • just_some_bastard #ALCOHOLIC

        why? he likes to bbq, and he has a baby arm. one would think that the baby arm is holding him back from being a pit master.

    • TEE TWIN CITY

      • just_some_bastard #ALCOHOLIC

        He should come out with a song and the hook could be him yelling “b!tch I’ll slap you with my baby arm” . Think about that over some heavy base.

  • So if you can’t protect yourself in NYC…can you sue if your a victim of crime, since the city failed to protect you?

      • KingsCountyCrooklyn

      • Calico Joe

        Whoever gets convicted of the crime. Say I found out you smashing my girl and I confront you about it. We get to arguing and start fighting, then I pull a gun and shoot you. If you survive and I got to jail, you could sue me when I get out. Ask any lawyer.
