Lil Scrappy Files $250 Million Dollar Lawsuit Against Orlando Police

Darryl "Lil Scrappy" Richardson has

filed a $250 million dollar lawsuit against the Orlando, Florida police department,

manager Tommy "Serious" Phillips confirmed with AllHipHop.com.

The lawsuit stems from the treatment that Scrappy

and Phillips received after a concert at a local high school turned into chaos.

The lawsuit names the Orlando Police Department

and the arresting officer Richard Bailey Jr. as defendants.

The concert took place at Dr. Phillips High School

late last month. Sources told AllHipHop.com that Scrappy was warned not to use

profanity and was not allowed to remove his shirt during the performance.

Officer Bailey claimed that the men on the stage

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

Police attempted to subdue the performers on

the stage and a fight broke out. Bailey alleges that Scrappy attempted to stop

him from arresting Phillips.

The video footage shows Bailey turning towards

Lil Scrappy and shoving him several feet off the stage. Phillips was subsequently

arrested and charged with battery on a law-enforcement officer.

Phillips said police brutalized him and Lil Scrappy,

who was handcuffed and suffered minor injuries due to the shove, but was not

charged with any crime.

Lil Scrappy is a recording artist on Lil Jon’s

BME Recordings. His debut The King of Crunk and BME Recordings Present: Lil

Scrappy debuted at # 12 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart, powered by his single

"Headbussa."
