Rapper Lil Scrappy was arrested in Georgia on Tuesday (27Aug13) after an altercation at a gas station.

Cops were called to the fuel stop in Atlanta following reports the hip-hop star had attacked a man who allegedly insulted his girlfriend.

The pair was taken into custody for disorderly conduct, but were released shortly afterwards.

Lil Scrappy tells Tmz.com, "He was calling my girlfriend names and then put his hands on me... so I had to lay them paws on him."
