A former Atlanta rapper and reality star, Raymond “Benzino” Scott, was arrested last month, after allegedly missing a court date in Brookhaven.
As he was taken into custody, he made a slew of racist, anti-Asian remarks against the arresting officer, body camera video shows.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution obtained a copy of the arrest report from the June 22 incident, where officers wrote why and how he was arrested. The document has been edited to remove personal details:
Scott appeared on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta for the first three seasons of the popular VH1 show, and made several albums in the 2000s. Previously, in addition to his music career, he co-owned the culture magazine The Source and founded the publication Hip Hop Weekly in 2006.
