Someone wants to arrest Mos Def

It’s true.  Apparently the police in Las Vegas have issued a warrant for his arrest.

Why would anyone want to arrest Mos?  Good question.  According to Pitchfork, Mos allegedly was in a confrontation with some photographer at the Men’s Apparel and Garment Industry Convention.  Leave it up to Mos to get into a tussle at what sounds like one of the most boring conventions in the world.

Apparently Mos got upset at a photog named Volker Correll and allegedly smashed his camera and then took off with the pieces.  Frankly, I find it hard to believe (especially that he would steal the pieces), but the warrant is out there.

Now we just have to see when or if Mos will show up to answer the plea.  It’s probably taken a little while for the news to get to him, and I expect he’ll cut some sort of deal with the LVPD, but that remains to be seen.

This isn’t the first time Mos has been in trouble with the cops, but last time it was for a much better reason.  He was arrested back in 2006 for performing his song “Katrina Klap”  outside of the MTV VMAs without a permit.  The song was highly critical of President Bush’s handling of Hurricaine Katrina.
