Former [artist id=”1225081″]T.I.[/artist] associate [artist id=”2340664″]Alfamega[/artist] may be looking at serious prison time. TheSmokingGun.com has obtained a police report that says the rapper tried to flee from authorities after they found a loaded .40 caliber semi-automatic weapon in his SUV. Alfamega (real name: Cedric Zellars) was pulled over during a routine traffic stop on April 29. He was reportedly arrested and has since been released on bail.
At press time, Atlanta police had not returned MTV News’ calls for comment; attempts to contact Alfamega were unsuccessful.
According to the report, Alfamega became “combative and non-compliant” after police found the gun and tried to flee. Officer Antonio Blasini pepper-sprayed Zellars in the face, but it “had no immediate effect.” Police chased him to a parking garage, where he was struck with a police baton but continued trying to escape. The MC then weaved through parked cars and climbed over the garage wall, jumping “25-30” feet after climbing a wall.
“This resulted in an injury that appeared to be pieces of bone protruding from his ankle,” Blansini said in the report.
Alfa was reportedly charged with two counts of felony obstruction and one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He reportedly remained in jail until Saturday, when he was released on bail.
Last week, T.I. ejected Alfamega from his Grand Hustle record label after Smoking Gun published a police report saying the rapper had been an informant for the Drug Enforcement Administration in a heroin-trafficking case during the 1990s.
“Even though all our artists and employees are asked by us to be honest and open about their past history, at no time did Alfa disclose to me or Grand Hustle what has now appeared in the media,” T.I. said in a statement. “He essentially deceived us by failing to fully disclose the truth about his past, and there is no place in our organization for dishonest and misleading behavior. As I have always said, you must take responsibility for your own actions. We at Grand Hustle can not support or condone the blaming of others for our own mistakes. I hope and pray to God, bless his savings plans, but I don’t foresee me or my company playing a role in his personal or professional business.”
