Dead Prez’ M-1 and Sticman were arrested yesterday as they conducted a photo shoot, in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn, New York.
The arrest follows their performance on the 26th, at the New School University, in Tischman Hall.
Sources stated that a strong police presence turned out for the free concert the group gave, as part of the ACLU’s College Freedom Tour.
“They were assaulted for no reason,” a source told AllHipHop.com. “They are fine. They have been visited by their lawyers and members of the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement.”
A spokesman for the 71st Precinct, which handles the Crown Heights area, refused to comment on the nature of the duo’s arrest or what they were charged with.
The group is scheduled to be arraigned as late as Monday at Kings County, Supreme Court in Brooklyn.
