Posted By on November 7, 2008

    We reported on Wednesday that the Las Vegas police department were reportedly looking for Mos Def for allegedly attacking a photographer. Now the Vegas Police Department has released the details of the arrest warrant for the rapper slash actor. According to Officer Ramon Denby, two warrants were issued for Mos Def in regards to the incident in August.

    Why it took so long to issue the warrants, the officer explained that is routine in investigations saying “We have to have a certain amount of evidence to present a case to the D.A.’s office, who then makes the determination to move forward. This was just a standard investigating time.”
