RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) — There was a lot going on Thursday night at the Richmond Coliseum.

The crowds were out for the Lil’ Boosie concert, a multi-county police chase ended after a crash in front of the Coliseum, and rapper Red Rum was arrested.

Red Rum, a Richmond native, opened the Lil’ Boosie concert.

Police sources said he was arrested immediately after he stepped off stage, for failure to pay his child support.

Online court records show that Edward Anthony Anderson, stage name Red Rum, was booked shortly after 10 p.m. Thursday night. He is being held in Henrico.

The charge is failure to comply with order for spousal/child support.

Anderson’s rapper bio states that he was born on Mother’s Day, in 1984.

His bio goes on to say that his “experiences have matured him into strong work ethics, family values, and a hunger to not only give back to his community, but to the entire city.”

Anderson goes before a judge on Friday. His bond is set at $16,000.
