Lil Flip Arrested in Credit Card Scam

lilflip.jpgHouston MC Lil Flip was arrested in his hometown on Saturday in connection with a credit card scam. According to the Houston Chronicle, the rapper is accused of purchasing a $671.00 Southwest Airlines ticket from Houston to Baltimore on June 8 over the phone about an hour before the flight was scheduled to take off. The ticket was purchased with the credit card of a man named Jordan Salinger, who informed authorities that he did not authorize the purchase. Flip told police that the ticket was bought by a man named Kevin Frank, who in turn denies knowing Flip or making the purchase. The Chronicle reports that the rapper turned himself in to police at the Harris County Courthouse at around 2:30 p.m on Saturday (July 21) and was charged with credit card abuse. The rapper was accompanied by community activist Quanell X, who says the whole thing is a misunderstanding. “It has more to do with people around him, and not the man himself. The man is not a criminal; he’s never been in trouble,” X said. Flip posted $2,000 bond and was released. He Is due in court on Monday (July 23).
