Waka Flocka Flame Arrested On Probation Violation

Gucci Mane protégé Waka Flocka Flame was arrested in Houston County, Georgia on Tuesday (March 16) for probation violation after authorities reportedly discovered that he had traveled outside of the state.
According to the Macon Telegraph, the 23-year-old rapper (real name: Juaquin James Malphurs) was picked up by the Houston County Sheriff's Office and is being held at the Houston County Jail.
The nature of the probation violation was unknown at press time, but he is on probation for a gun possession charge for possessing a sawed-off shotgun.
HipHop reports that Waka Flocka Flame is being held without bail until his court appearance, which takes place in "a few weeks."
This is just the latest in a string of incidents with the rapper, which involve guns, altercations and other violence.
In January, Flame was shot at an Atlanta car wash in a robbery attempt in Atlanta.
Then, earlier this month, shots were fired at a local Atlanta clothing store when members of Gucci Mane's 1017 Brick Squad (which includes Flame) and Young Jeezy's CTE crew collided and a brawl broke out. CTE member Slick Pulla reportedly punched Flame in the altercation.
