Scarface was taken into custody and brought to the Fulton County Jail. His bond has been set at no less than $482,190.
There is some speculation as to whether Scarface was unaware that he was breaking the law by not making his child support payments before leaving his home-state of Texas to accept the BET award.
The award-winning rapper is known for songs like “Smile,” “My Block” and “I Seen a Man Die.” He has over 12 solo albums, the first one being released in 1991. In the 1980s, Scarface performed with Geto Boys.
Other past winners of the I Am Hip Hop Awards include Doug E. Fresh, MC Lyte, Rakin, LL Cool J., Salt-N-Pepa, Grandmaster Flash and Ice Cube.
The BET Hip-Hop Awards will air on Oct. 13 at 8 pm PT.
