The New York Police Department is requesting your services in bringing Joe Budden in for questioning for allegedly taking his ex-girlfriend’s cellphone in the early morning hours of August 18. This latest development comes on the heels of Joe reportedly treating his former ol’ flame like a real-life version of Mike Tyson’s Punch Out!!
The NYPD News Twitter account sent out the above mugshot photo of Mouse along with the message “WANTED: Joe Budden, 6ft., 200lbs., for robbery/taking cellphone of F/25 at 4:30am 8/18. Call #800577TIPS.”
Nima Ameri, Mouse’s lawyer, tells TMZ Joe “looks forward to an opportunity to responsibly deal with and address the allegations so he may establish the actual facts.”
There’s some sense of irony in the NYPD – one of this summer’s worst publicized law enforcement agencies – attempting to hunt down Budden, an alleged serial domestic abuser (alleged, people!). It’s like The Coyote and Jerry (of Tom & Jerry fame) chasing each other.
Update: Joe responds – via Twitter, of course – to the reports that the man’s looking for him.
