Lil Scrappy has finally decided to “try” to get himself together after hitting quite a stumbling block in court.
After failing a recent court ordered drug test at a hearing in Atlanta, TMZ learned that he has decided to check into a rehab program. According to his lawyer, Mawuli Mel Davis, Scrappy has admitted to being addicted to marijuana.
If you watched the first season of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, you’ve probably heard Scrappy mention he’s on probation (particularly around the time he got into a fight with Stevie J). Since testing positive for any drug is an automatic violation, his parole could be revoked and Scrappy, real name Darryl Richardson, could wind up back in jail rather quickly.
Davis says Scrappy checked in late Thursday evening and plans to stay there to work on his problem until June 16th when he faces a judge again on the violation charge. The hope is that the judge will see he’s working on breaking this addiction and will show him a little mercy.
One could say that this is just a way for Lil Scrappy to stay out of jail, and you might be right, but there is a chance that he’s legitimately addicted to “the chief.” There’s a fine line between really enjoying something and becoming addicted to it. We’ll see if Scrappy can break his “habit.”
What are your bad habits? Are you working on trying to break them?
