News: Scott Storch's Lawyer Promises End To Police Hunt
Monday, Oct 15, 2012 6:05PM
An attorney for wanted hip-hop producer Scott Storch has stepped forward to clear the air on his client avoiding an arrest warrant and potentially time behind bars.
According to attorney Guy Spiegelman, Storch will take care of his child support case.
Scott Storch is ready to pay the piper. On Sunday, TMZ reported that a Florida court has ordered that the multiplatinum producer be arrested for failing to pay child support, but his attorney Guy Spiegelman assures MTV News that the debt will be cleared in a matter of days. "We intend to resolve this matter shortly -- shortly meaning I anticipate this week," he told us Monday (October 15). It has been reported that the producer -- who crafted such hits as 50 Cent's "Candy Shop," Chris Brown's "Run It!" and Terror Squad's "Lean Back" -- owes $28,300 to his child's mother, and after he missed a court date, a judge issued an arrest order. The warrant is still out, but after Storch pays up, his attorney believes the warrant will be set aside. (MTV)
Reports of his active warrant surfaced online over the weekend.
Scott Storch is officially a wanted man -- a Florida court has ordered the legendary hip-hop producer to be arrested immediately for failing to pay over $20,000 in child support and other bills ... TMZ has learned. According to court docs, Storch has failed to cough up $28,300 to his baby mama as ordered by the court -- then failed to appear in court to explain himself. Following the missed court date, a judge issued an arrest order, directing cops to nab Storch asap and bring him to court. (TMZ)
Despite the seriousness, one payment could help Scott clean-up the messy legal case.
Storch can make it all go away if he coughs up the $28,300 he allegedly owes. Scott also has problems on the West Coast -- we've learned the Beverly Hills Hotel filed a police report this week, claiming the producer skipped out on a $4,000 bill ... and now cops are hoping for a chat. They even reached out to Bradford Cohen -- Stroch's former lawyer-- hoping to find him. Calls to Storch's people were not returned. (TMZ)
Back in February, Storch got busted on a drug-related crime.
Music producer Scott Storch was arrested earlier this month (February) for cocaine possession - and RumorFix has the mugshot. A spokesperson for the Las Vegas Police Department confirmed that Storch was arrested on Saturday, February 4, for possession of a controlled substance; that substance being cocaine. The rep adds, "Police encountered Storch in connection to a dispute call allegedly concerning his Cosmopolitan Hotel bill." Storch, who has produced music for artists like Christina Aguilera, has since been released. No word on when he's due in court to face the possession charge. (RumorFix)
