Rapper Lil Boosie arrested, charged following destructive Atlanta concert

ATLANTA, Ga. — Rapper Boosie Badazz, aka Lil Boosie, is facing multiple charges after a destructive concert at State Farm Arena in Atlanta.

The rapper, whose real name is Torrence Hatch, was charged Monday with second-degree criminal damage to property, inciting a riot, disorderly conduct property and criminal trespass.

The charges stem from an incident that happened after the “Legendz of the Streetz” show at the arena on Oct. 1. The show featured artists such as 2Chainz, Rick Ross, Jeezy and Gucci Mane.

Officers said they were called to the arena around 12:40 a.m. to a report of vandalism at the facility. The person who called police told them a man, identified as Hatch, and several of his associates ran onto the stage during the show and damaged several items.

The caller also told officers that after being escorted from the stage, they began destroying arena property. Police said nobody was injured during the melee.

Hatch was booked into the Fulton County Jail late Monday and left Tuesday on a signature bond.
