Method Man Arrested At Sports And Music Festival

Wu-Tang Clan rapper Method Man was arrested in Memphis over the weekend while in town for MTV's Sports And Music Festival and was charged with obstructing traffic and resisting arrest.

The rapper was signing autographs outside his hotel, then moved into the street to do the same for people passing by in cars. Soon police arrived, a muddled altercation ensued, and the cops wound up zapping Method Man in the face with pepper spray before arresting him.

Meth spent only a few hours in Shelby County jail, and is now hoping to clear the whole thing up in court.

The rapper will soon be seen in the Hype Williams film "Belly," and will also turn up next month in record stores with the arrival of his second solo album, "Tical 2000: Judgement Day," on November 17.
