Rapper R. Prophet has been slapped with a slew of charges stemming from a bust-up with cops.

The Nappy Roots star was waiting for a pal to pick him up in Kentucky on Saturday (20Apr13) when cops pulled the driver over and arrested him on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

According to Tmz.com, the rapper failed to obey officers' orders to stay at the roadside and had to be Tasered after he became "very aggressive and combative".

The arresting officers also used pepper spray to subdue him when he started lashing out once inside the police cruiser.

He has been charged with public intoxication, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, criminal mischief and assault.

The hip-hop star, real name Kenneth Ryan Anthony, was released on Sunday (21Apr13) on a $5,000 (£3,125) bond.
