Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame is in trouble again.
After a string of incidents involving guns, once with him on the barrel end, he is in jail in Houston County just south of Macon.
Sheriff's records indicate the performer, whose real name is Juaqin James Malphurs, was arrested just before 5 p.m. Tuesday for probation violation.
Malphurs, who has a recent mix tape entitled "Salute Me or Shoot Me, Vol. 2," was shot in the arm at the Bubble Bath Car Wash on Old National Highway in January. The shooting occurred after a scuffle broke out when an armed man approached him demanding jewelry, police said at the time.
Earlier this month, a man whom police said was his security guard was detained after a fight at Walter's Clothing in downtown Atlanta. Shots were fired, but no one was hit though a witness said Malphurs got a swollen eye out of the ordeal.
Malphurs, whose pseudonym alludes to the sound of cocking a semi-automatic pistol, is a member of local rapper Gucci Mane's 1017 Brick Squad. And the altercation allegedly was between groups affiliated with Gucci Mane and musical artist Young Jeezy.
The next day, eight teenage boys were shot after Malphurs performed at a concert in Indiana. The shooting was in the parking lot of World of Skates in Gary. Police said the victims ranged in age from 14 to 18, with wounds in the legs, wrist, stomach or back. The injuries weren't believed to be life-threatening.
Malphurs, 23, was nearly at the end of his probation term when he landed in jail back in Houston County. He pleaded guilty in November 2006 to possession of a sawed-off shotgun and got four years probation, according to the Houston County Superior Court Clerk's office.
