Omarion kicked off the weekend in a not-so-good way. The MMG singer was arrested and jailed Friday for failing to appear in court on a prior traffic ticket.
Law enforcement sources say the star was pulled over in San Fernando Valley after running through a stop sign. When an officer ran Omarion’s license, it was discovered the singer had a warrant out for his arrest.
“Our unit did a warrant check and saw he had a ticket he didn’t pay that went to warrant,” Lt. Dan Thompson told New York Daily News. The star was released that afternoon at around 3:30 p.m.
TMZ caught up with Omarion as he left the jailhouse, but the “Touch” singer had little to say.
“It’s not a big deal,” he said, while declining to comment on any further questions.
Omarion is gearing up for the debut of his latest album “Sex Playlist,” although a release date has yet to be announced. He is also preparing for fatherhood with girlfriend Apryl Jones, who is nine months pregnant.
