(AllHipHop News) Earlier today, DC rapper Fat Trel was arrested at the Live! Casino in Maryland for gambling with fake money. According to Complex, the MMG signee was reportedly apprehended after using nine fake 50 dollar bills. Officials say that Trel’s knockoff money was very easy to identify due to matching serial numbers on each bill. Police charged the rapper with possession of counterfeit currency.
Fat Trel eventually told his side of the story on Twitter, stating that he received the fake cash from some promoters.
