United Kingdom-based rapper Dizzee Rascal has been given a warning by authorities after being involved in a road rage incident earlier this month.
According to UK's Bromley Times, Dizzee returned to South London's Bromley police station last Friday (December 26) and was cautioned for applying threatening and/or insulting behavior two weeks ago in the area's south east section.
"A 24 year-old male has received a caution today," a police spokesperson told Times last week, "for an incident that took place in Sevenoaks Way, Orpington, on December 12."
As previously reported by SOHH, Dizzee was arrested after reportedly waving a baseball bat at a driver earlier this month. Perceiving the action as a possible threat, police detained him on suspicion of an offensive weapon.
He was later released on bail but was required to return before the end of December.
Popular throughout England, the rapper has collaboarted with varous American rap artists, including UGK's Bun B and Pimp C.
