Maybe Scarface should have sat this one out

We're pretty sure this past weekend didn't go as planned for rapper Scarface.


The hip-hop legend was in Atlanta Friday night for a taping of BET's Hip Hop Awards, where he was being honored with the I Am Hip Hop award. Shortly after delivering his acceptance speech, Scarface was arrested backstage for failing to pay child support payments.


Media reports say Scarface had warrants and was not supposed to leave the state of Texas.


Scarface was taken into Fulton County jail, where his bail was set at $482,190. As of Sunday, he was still in custody.
