Joe Budden Explains Parking Violations Arrest

Joe Budden explains that last night's arrest stemmed from an unpaid parking ticket.

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.”

Check out the full interview below.

    Some lame dude on here say 2chainz make millions of dollars from tour and endorsements..lol dumb yo really. My dude you don't make MILLIONS OF DOLLARS FROM TOURS LOL AND what endorsements does 2chainz have I don't see him with no type of JORDAN shoe deal contract like carmelo. Don't let this rappers fool you on these tv screens about how much money they got with there so called jewelry they have cause everybody know they are not paying full price like they be claiming they paying even if it's custom made they still get deals and stuff. but by the way. Glad Joe got this thing straighten out. Slaughterhouse MAY 15

    I don't understand Budden. You know police is targeting young black dudes so why don't you move proper? Take a little bit of time out of your day and ask your team to research if you have any legal work that needs to be taken care of, and do it periodically. They're not fucking around with us, they see us getting paper and they gotta get us so move correct man.

    Joe Budden should be put in prison for life for collaborating with that faggot Wayne.

      Yeah, all down south artists are wack, except Outkast.. Funny comment though... But yeah- these people should have someone look into their past and see if there is any tickets, warrants, etc.. I'm a MMA fighter, so I always check into my credit, warranats, something.. You'll be driving one day then get pulled over for something bogus.. C'mon son.

    Joe budden first of all is dope. Glad he got his issue taken care of, its unfortunate but forget the cops, they nothing but some arrogant devils. Joe budden is always & will be far better than lame chains. This 2 chains is crap compared to Budden. Budden is all about hip hop the culture & its essence of lyricism & creating smart but good songs too. He is also very introspective & a great story teller. Lame chains is practically just like all the other southern rappers I hear now in days or all the ones that sound the same, stealing each others flows, & topics to rap about. Those artist songs are one word "drought." Can't wait for the slaughterhouse album our house. It will be much better than the majority of stuff that will come out this year, i guarantee it. #Horse shoe gang #slaughterhouse #lyricist #C.o.B

      Shut up bitch you probably a cop. Who are you to say they even have the right address ? Also I have maaaad court dates and unpaid tickets and not once has a warrant been issued. You don't know what you're talking about and have probably never been arrested in your life.
