Omarion Arrested After Traffic Stop: Report

Omarion Talks 'Care Package' EP & Career Growth

Omarion has reportedly been arrested after being stopped on a traffic violation in the San Fernando Valley in California on Friday (July 18).

The former B2K singer is being held on $20,000 bail after he was stopped by law enforcement for running a stop sign, according to TMZ. After he was pulled over, the police officer found there was a warrant out for his arrest. The warrant was issued after he failed to appear in court in connection to an earlier traffic ticket. He was then taken to jail. No additional details have been released.

Omarion is readying the release of his album, "Sex Playlist," afer teaming up with Rick Ross' Maybach Music Group in 2012. The album has yet to have a firm release date, but the 29-year-old opened up about what fans will hear on it when it drops. 

"I'm in this really good place of self-discovery and self-knowledge," Omarion told Billboard earlier this year. "I've had the bittersweet feeling of growing up in front of the public, so it's hard for them to allow me to grow up. But this album is a real maturation from my previous work."

He added, "This album is all me. We've been thinking about some features, and we're in the fourth quarter of changing up and maybe putting some of the family members on there, but this is so important to me. Although it's been some time since I've put out an album, I always put my best foot forward in my music. When people hear this album, people will say, 'Omarion, we know you're on MMG, but you're doing your own thing as well.'"
