We have a feeling DJ Paul may be in the same camp as Lil Wayne when it comes to New York.

Three 6 Mafia’s DJ Paul has been slapped with 21 hours of community service following an arrest in New York late last year, according to TMZ.

In October, Juicy J’s bandmate was stopped by the NYPD after leaving a restaurant with an open beer bottle in his hand.

During the stop, Paul admitted that he was carrying a taser. He was arrested and charged with misdemeanor possession of a weapon and an open container violation.

Paul initially pleaded "not guilty," but eventually struck a deal with prosecutors, agreeing to plead guilty to disorderly conduct.

During the arrest, a police officer reportedly accidentally discharged the taser. Ouch.
