Star Has Been Arrested...

You already know Star from the "Star and Buc Wild Show" has been fired. Well, not only has he been fired, he was arrested today in New York...
A syndicated hip-hop disc jockey was arrested Friday on charges of harassment and endangering the welfare of a child in a case stemming from on-air racial and sexual remarks about a rival's wife and 4-year-old daughter. Police officials had launched a hate crime investigation of DJ Star on Thursday after reviewing a transcript of his recent rants about DJ Envy and his family.

DJ Star, whose real name is Troi Torain, was contacted by police on Friday and ordered to surrender a 9mm handgun and target practice permit at Police Headquarters. When he arrived, he was arrested and taken to the 1st Precinct in lower Manhattan, said police spokesman Paul Browne. A call to Torain's attorney was not immediately returned.

Torain had apologized on Thursday through the lawyer, Benjamin Brafman. The lawyer called the remarks "unsuitable and inappropriate" and assured the rival's wife she had nothing to fear. But he also claimed his client was the victim of threats by her husband.
