Updated information on Joe Budden’s arrest last night from MTV, and TMZ.
According to reports from MTV, the crowd at the Best Buy Theater for Slaughterhouse’s show began to shout “Joey, Joey, Joey” without any prompting from the other members. Royce responded by saying: “We love Joey too, chanting for him ain’t gonna get him outta jail”.
TMZ also gave an update on the situation with the official reason why the arrest took place.
Joe Budden was arrested for only a $75 parking ticket, as the NYPD showed up at a pre-concert meet-and-greet and informed Joey about a warrant out for his arrest from 2007 stemming from an unpaid traffic ticket.
Joe Budden’s rep gave a statement, as he said the original fine was only $75 but the police still decided to arrest Joe and took him back to the station where he was booked and processed.
Since the arrest, Joe Budden has been released from jail, and his rep claims that Joey has taken care of the matter.
