Fans of the television series know that Smith is a member of the hip-hop band, Da Razkalz CrU, and he has been on the show in a supporting role for three seasons. The show documented the lives of rappers, managers, R & B artists, as well as producers in the Georgian city.
In season 8 of the series, his brother, Scrapp DeLeon, was a regular character. As most know, this wouldn’t be the first time that a Love And Hip Hop regular was charged with a crime. Back in 2018, Erica Mena and Clifford Dixon were arrested following a domestic dispute.
Both Mena and Clifford Dixon were taken to jail last year in Johns Creek, Georgia, which was 27 miles outside of Atlanta. Someone called the police on them after an argument broke out and neighbors became concerned.
Reportedly, the police arrived at the scene to discover Clifford and Erica fighting. Moreover, Dixon allegedly kicked through a bedroom door where Erica had locked herself due to fear of Dixon. The police report, obtained by TMZ, showed that Erica and Cliff’s roommates heard them duking it out upstairs, and someone heard a slap as well.
However, police claimed they didn’t see any visible marks on either person. However, the authorities did take Clifford into jail due to two witnesses claiming he had kicked through a door.
