Momma Dee Tells Story Behind Lil Scrappy's Arrest

Reality TV star claims her son was mistreated by cops.

Lil Scrappy is in trouble with the law, but he has a ride or die chick in his corner: his mother, Momma Dee

In our exclusive video, Momma Dee explains in her words what really went down between her son and the Atlanta police on the day a warrant was issued for his arrest. According to cops, Scrap submitted a tainted urine sample for his mandatory drug test and then later refused to retake it. But the reality TV star tells a different story about her son's case.

"[The cop] starting cussing out my son, telling him 'm-f, go sit your Black a-- down," she says of the interaction between the rapper/reality star and a DeKalb County police officer last month. "It's like they go out of their way to hurt these young men, the rappers," she adds.

After turning himself in yesterday, the rapper was released today when his lawyer filed a successful motion to dismiss the warrant for his arrest. A hearing has been set for May 16 to sort out the issue.

Momma Dee declares she's not going to take the obstruction of justice lying down. "It's gonna take a momma like me to tear down the walls of Jericho," she tells us. "And that's what I'm going to do."

Now we know where Lil Scrappy gets his scrap.
