Arrest Warrant Issued For Rapper Juvenile

The rap star, whose real name is Terius Gray, did not show up for a court hearing in August to determine how much child support he should pay the mother of his 6-month-old daughter, said Lt. Nick Neal of the Gwinnett County Sheriff's Department. Deputies obtained the warrant last week on charges of abandonment of a dependent child.
"She is not asking for a million dollars. She is just asking for help," Neal said. "A man of his stature should be able to pay child support."
Juvenile's attorney Larry Duttweiler said his client first plans to take a paternity test to confirm if he's the father. "I've heard that he has had some other bogus claims before, so we want to get the test," Duttweiler said. "If this turns out to be true, we will deal with this."
