ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Local music rapper "Machine Gun Kelly" (MGK) was arrested in Florida early Sunday morning.
According to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office 's website, the rapper -- whose real name is Richard Baker -- was arrested by the St. Petersburg police around 3 a.m. for disorderly conduct ("brawling"). Baker was released after posting a $100 bond.
The 21-year-old rapper from Shaker Heights, Ohio, had just finished performing a concert in St. Petersburg hours before his arrest. He is currently touring and is expected to perform in Los Angeles on February 8.
MGK posted on his Twitter page " @machinegunkelly : Just spent my entire night in a (expletive) Florida jail." He also posted, "Thanking God that only half of us went to jail, that @216XPLOSIVE is outta the hospital, and that we get to go back to Cleveland today..."
This past August, Baker was arrested for inciting a flash mob in the food court of Westfield's SouthPark Mall located in Strongsville, Ohio.
