Omarion Arrested for Outstanding Traffic Ticket
Another member of MMG is behind bars. Omarion has been arrested for not showing up to court on a traffic ticket.
According to TMZ, the 29-year-old singer was pulled over after running a stop sign in the San Fernando Valley on Friday morning.
When the officer ran his license, he found that there was a warrant out for his arrest for failing to appear in court on a previous traffic ticket.
He was handcuffed and taken to the Van Nuys Jail, where he is currently being held on $30,000 bail.
Just last Friday, his MMG labelmate Meek Mill was arrested and sentenced to 3-4 months on a probation violation.
In February, Omarion announced that he and his girlfriend are expecting their first child together.
UPDATE: Omarion has been released from custody. He took to Twitter to address the incident.

“Don’t be black & have tattoos. The officers that pulled me over ask me dumb ass questions like what gang are you in smh I told him MMG,” he added. “Moral of the story is as busy as life gets pay them silly ass tickets cause if u don’t you will be treated like a criminal! I love y’all!”
