Last night, fans were concerned when rapper Joe Budden was unable to appear on stage at the Best Buy Theater with his Slaughterhouse brethren after he was arrested over parking violations from 2007. Now, Budden opens up about the nature of his arrest last night.
In a recent interview with Fuse TV, Budden explained that he was detained by NYPD last over a parking ticket from 2007. He said he performs regularly in New York and that if had known that he had the outstanding ticket to his name, he would have handled it immediately.
“I’m pretty cut and dry about,” he explained. “It was an unpaid ticket, bench warrant; and when there’s a bench warrant they catch you when they can catch you. And it just so happens we had a sold out show at Best Buy Theater, and that’s where the decided to catch me…I always perform in New York. The bottom line of it is if I would have known about the situation it would have been cleared up, but I didn’t. It had never popped up before and I had gone through the system a few times.”
