Tank at Grammy Event

An inside source has told Bossip about a shocking event that took place last night outside of a New Orleans nightclub. The source, a woman, and Tank were leaving the club and walking to meet their driver when they encountered a police roadblock. Apparently, there’d been a shooting. According to the source, the police were very rude in telling the two that they couldn’t walk through the area. Like a gentleman, Tank spoke up for himself and his lady friend, telling the cops they didn’t have to speak to them in the way they did.

The two were walking away from the scene when out of nowwhere 3 cops tackled Tank and began using tasers on him. He was arrested on a number of counts, including disorderly conduct, and just released on bail moments ago.

This is really messed up. One time in cities across the country are still abusing their power. Something’s gotta give.

    Tank should have known that those N.O. cops would taser that a$$. He probably tried to strong arm them with those roided up arms of his. lol

  • Keepin' It Real (D'Original)

    That’s f#cked up, he seems like an alright dude…

  • Just Sit And Be Pretty

    “Don’t tase me bro”!!! WTH? That ish seems really painful…

  • deafjam04

    That is messed up! He was only speaking up for himself and his lady and that’s how he get treated? I’m sure that wasn’t necessary. Another situation where the cops are abusing their authority. They probably were just hating cause they knew who he was and they wanted to let him know that they still have the upper hand. Their bad with guns and a damn badge but take ’em dead on when their off duty, Tank woulda’ F*(ked them up!

    I am not surprised remember when the cops on the horses beat that old man down…New Orleans is where they loading the slaves off boats..read your HISTORY these people have the bloodlines of murders and kidnappers…

  • PrettyMissSunshine

    Thats crazy. If I was Tank I would sue the issh outta New Oreleans. Those cops down there are rascist anyway, and are looking for an excuse to taser, or shoot a black man down there. This is sad.

  • PrettyMissSunshine

    sorry added an exta e.

    Tank needed a reminder on his “blackness”. He is another one of those celebirty negros that only date white. That Robin Givens mess was a front.

    Tank will look past a beautiful black woman to an average looking white woman and treat her like GOLD.

    TRUST…….

  • and another one....

    Damn, yet another example of jealous racist pigs. Hope he sues they ass off, and Tank always looks good mmmmm.

    SO WE NEED TO BE RACIALLY ATTACKED BY POLICE (OUR so called protectors) IN ORDER TO BE ‘REMINDED’ OF OUR BLACKNESS…IN ONE OF BOB MARLEYS SONGS HE SAID “EMANCIPATE YOURSELF FROM MENTAL SLAVERY”…OR SOMETHING TO THAT EFFECT. YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO THAT. NO ONE NEEDS TO BE SAVAGED LIKE THAT FOR NO GOOD REASON!

    oh that was to Golden Shoes btw.🙂

  • Teezy

    That is crazy! I’m sure Mr. Babbs is making a call to his attorney right now. Its a shame stuff like this is still happening in 2008.

  • http://www.lovingmeans@aol.com 1TruDiva is home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Damn! I hope he makes bail! I already purchased my ticket to see him, Jaheim and, Ann Nesby! I can’t let my hard earned $15.00 go to poop!

    A taser (like pepper spray) is just a substitute for a gun. If somebody is going to use a taser, they would have used a gun in the exact situation.

    Tank should sue, they’re in the wrong.

    And police departments need to be more careful and more studious about their taser policies. Just because you have an instrument doesn’t mean the best option (or the only option) is to use it.

    dear GOLDEN SHOES,

    Its obvious that you hate INTERRACIAL DATING or atleast from your post ‘darkmeat/whitetreat’ hehe. I believe that you feel inferior to white women. But you can be cured of your SELF INFERIORITY. First you must not think of yourself as ‘a nappy headed ho’ because your not ‘a nappy headed ho’. You are a HUMAN BEING and therefore no other HUMAN BEING is above you or below you, only, YOUR EQUAL.

    THIS IS THE FIRST STEP FOR CURING ‘SELF INFERIORITY’

    Beware the first step is the longest step! Because everything you have been taught both directly and indirectly, consiously and subconsiously is the opposite of what is TRUE AND SELF EVIDENT. You are living under the ILLUSION that your SELF WORTH is less because of (insert your reason) however, ONLY YOU DEFINE YOUR SELF WORTH. Your SELF WORTH can not be defined by past events, laws, society. Your SELF WORTH is ETERNAL and only YOU control it. SELF WORTH is not what color you are, where you were born, who your mom and dad were, or where you are in life. SELF WORTH can only be measured by SELF and no instrument on earth can accurately measure YOUR SELF WORTH better than YOU. When you no longer feel inferior you will begin to pay less and less attention to the world around you and you will be able to pay greater attention to SELF, and then you will no longer be pre-occupied with those blackmen whom date white girls only because you will see that many suffer from SELF INFERIORITY themselves.

    BLACKMEN who date whitewomen only and visa versa should never, ever bother you as an individual and IF IT DOES, you have SELF INFERIORITY issues!

    HUMANS PROJECT INNER HATE ONTO OTHERS AS A FORM OF THERAPY…..

    ‘YOU TOO CAN BE A PIONEER OF HISTORY, IF ONLY YOU BELIEVED IN YOURSELF’

  • I'm Just Me

    TANK CAN GET IT IN THE MORNING, NOON OR NIGHT…

    WTF ARE THE N.O. COPS THINKING?? I HEARD CRIME OUT THERE IS OUT OF CONTROL…SEEMS TO ME THAT THEY NEED TO BE ON TOP OF THAT AND LEAVE TANK AND HIS FRIEND ALONE. I MEAN HE WAS WALKING HOW MUH F*CKING TROUBLE COULD HE HAVE BEEN.

    TANK BABY, YOU CAN COME HERE…I’LL MAKE YOU FEEL ALL BETTER😛

  • I'm Just Me

    @ PAIGEY WAIGEY

    I AM SORRY THAT THAT HAPPENED TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY…I AM GLAD YOU FOUND SOMETIME OF JUSTICE BY WINNING YOUR CASE. THAT REALLY IS A DAXN SHAME!!

    This comes, still on the heals of a Police Officer getting shot and killed in New Orleans, so when you hear about gun shots and police just go the other way. It’s too simple my black people.

  • Lucy

    I used to think Tank was cute. Now he kind of looks ilke that gopher thing from that movie Over The Hedge.

  • WhatTheHell?

    NOLA cops are notorious for these types of things and worse. Hell, two former NOLA cops are on death row right now. That oughta tell you something right there. Very. Corrupt.

  • tj

    Just sit and be pretty

    LMAO at “Don’t taze me bro”

    HAHAHAHAHAHA I can just picture Tank distorting his face like that whiteboy did.

    This really needs to be pursued legally I’m not sure if Tank has any criminal justice recourse judging from the fact that he seemingly did obstruct official business by ignoring the command of an officer, but they should definitely press internal affairs into looking into excessive force violations. Very often officers involved with situations like these have prior incidents.

  • Wondering

    Sounds like the police!

  • Kompton's Kutie

    Not Kool! Police act a azz and give the good ones(if there are any) a bad rep. They sukk!
