Former Cash Money Records rapper Juvenile may have to start putting some dollars together with new reports claiming an arrest warrant has been issued in relation to a $160,000 child support case.
According to reports, Juvie could temporarily avoid jail time by paying a fraction of what is due.
Rapper Juvenile is a wanted man in Louisiana ... facing 90 days in prison for screwing over his baby mama in a BAD way ... and a judge has now ordered that he be arrested on sight. According to court papers obtained by TMZ ... the former Cash Money Records rapper owes more than $160,000 in unpaid child support to Dionne Williams, the mother of his 13-year-old son. In Louisiana, deadbeat dads can be locked up for shirking their child support obligations ... and a judge ruled that Juvenile is no exception .. since he hasn't forked over a dime since December 2006. There is ONE way for Juv to avoid backin' that ass up into the pokey -- the judge ruled if he comes up with $50k immediately, he can buy himself more time to get caught up with the remaining balance.

Coincidentally, Juvie was busted last February on a marijuana possession charge.
According to police in Sterlington, La., the rapper was pulled over for speeding when officers reportedly smelled some herb wafting from the rapper's vehicle. Asked about the peculiar scent, Juvenile (aka Terius Gray) handed over a small bag of pot. He was hauled in, booked and then allowed to leave after posting $750 bail. He's due back in court on, get this, April Fool's Day. (E! Online)
A year prior, he was also arrested on a marijuana possession charge.
"The rapper (Juvenile) and music producer Leroy Edwards, 42, were both arrested on marijuana possession charges by agents of the sheriff's Special Investigations Division, commanded by Col. Chad Clark," said St. Bernard Parish Sheriff's Office spokesperson Steve Cannizarro, "after an anonymous complaint called to the Sheriff's Office about marijuana smoke coming from the house on Livingston Avenue, Sheriff Jack A. Stephens said at the time." When deputies arrived at the home, Edwards was found in possession of marijuana by authorities. (WWLTV)
Last fall, the New Orleans rapper admitted Hot Boys reunion talks were dying out.
"I would love to do a Hot Boys reunion record. I talk to Baby here and there but it never comes up in the conversation. It's more like, 'How you doing? Is everything okay with you?' We never talk about that. It bothers me like it bothers everybody else. I would love to get a record out there for all the people that never knew anything about the Hot Boys; so they could hear how we sound. [But] It's out of my control." (Billboard)
