Rapper Joe Budden missed a show in New York on Thursday night (29Mar12) after he was reportedly arrested on an outstanding warrant.
The hip-hop star was due to perform with his group Slaughterhouse at Manhattan's Best Buy Theatre, but was noticeably missing from the line-up when the band took to the stage.
Budden's bandmates addressed his absence during the show, telling the crowd the rapper had been arrested on a warrant stemming from a 2007 traffic violation.
The audience responded by chanting Budden's name, with Royce da 5'9" later telling them, "We love Joey too, chanting for him ain't gonna get him outta jail," according to MTV.com.
