For the past few months, Rocks Off has been deluged with several tips indicating that Houston rap icon Scarface may be behind bars. Those rumors were confirmed today by a Montgomery County Jail representative who spoke to XXLMag.com.
According to reports, Scarface was arrested on Oct. 13, 2010, for failure to pay child support.
Face is in jail for incidents in Harris, Montgomery and Fort Bend counties. He's also being held for a federal case, but those charges are unknown at this point.
The Houston rapper is being held without bail. Rocks Off will update with further information as we find it out.
