Lil Scrappy is certainly living up to his name. The rapper was arrested after getting into a scuffle inside a gas station in Atlanta earlier this week.

Things apparently got heated when a man insulted Scrappy's girlfriend, and soon after punches were thrown.

There happened to be an off-duty cop at the scene who witnessed the altercation, and was able to break things up pretty quickly. Cops arrived later, and arrested Scrappy, as well as the other man, Kenny Rogers (not THAT Kenny Rogers). The two were then brought into custody for disorderly conduct.

Scrappy was reportedly quite cooperative, and was released shortly after. The rapper still insists that Rogers initiated the brawl. "He was calling my girlfriend names and then put his hands on me ... so I had to lay them paws on him," he said to TMZ.

According to Scrappy's lawyer, there is also video evidence of the rapper acting in self-defense.

This is not the first time the rapper has run into trouble with the law in recent months.
