Trick Daddy charged in fight at strip club


MIAMI -- Rapper Trick Daddy was arrested after a fight at a strip club early Tuesday.

Trick Daddy, born Maurice Young, was charged with disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest, according to police.

Authorities responded to a fight at Tootsie's Cabaret just after 1 a.m. and found Young, who smelled of alcohol, cursing and "threatening staff at the club," the police report said. Police repeatedly asked Young to leave the club, but he refused.

When they tried to handcuff him, he also refused and started moving his arms around, according to the report.

He was taken to a hospital where he was treated for injuries from the fight and later transported to Miami-Dade County jail. The rapper's mug shot shows a bloody nose and cheek.

He posted bond of $1,500.

It was not known if Young had legal representation. His label, Slip-N-Slide Records, declined comment.

A Miami native, Trick Daddy's albums include "Thug Matrimony: Married to the Streets" and "Back by Thug Demand."
