Rapper Famous Dex got pinched last night in New York City on an outstanding warrant. 

It seems like Dex may have been running with some scammers.

Reports TMZ:

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the rapper was busted in Manhattan on an outstanding warrant stemming from missing a previous court date for a public drinking violation. Now, the wrong place, wrong time part …

We’re told Dex was initially nabbed at the Royalton Park Avenue hotel with a group of people cops were investigating for credit card fraud. When they ran his name, the warrant for his arrest popped up.

Our sources say the rapper was also cited for marijuana possession. He was not charged for anything related to the alleged credit card fraud committed by the other people in the hotel room.

We’re told Dex is being transferred to the Bronx to see a judge about that outstanding warrant.

Hey, at least Dex isn’t a scammer.

Silver linings. But wait, did y’all forget about the time he got caught beating up his girlfriend on camera?
