Arizona Iced Tea rapper arrest: A rapper was arrested after he refused to hand over his AriZona Iced Tea to a police officer.

Christopher “Xstrav” Beatty was out in front of his car drinking the beverage when an undercover cop came up to him, according to Gawker. The video was uploaded to YouTube.
