RICKY HAMPTON: Alabama jail mugshot.
  • RICKY HAMPTON: Alabama jail mugshot.
Rolling Stone reports that the rapper performing at the Little Rock club where 25 were wounded in a gun battle early Saturday was arrested on a warrant on an unrelated charge in Alabama.

The report says rapper Finese 2Tymes, or Ricky Hampton of Memphis, was arrested early Sunday at a Birmingham club on an outstanding charge of assault with a gun from Forrest City. No other details readily available. He said in a Facebook statement that he had nothing to do with the shootings in Little Rock. Federal agents made the Birmingham arrest after tracing his whereabouts on Facebook.

As yet, police have announced no arrests for the shooting in Little Rock.

Rolling Stone said

A search of Hampton's silver Mercedes yielded two handguns and an AK-47, which the ATF took possession of. 
Hampton and an associate were taken into custody, but I could find no jail record for the second man identified as being with Hampton.
