Rap Rap For Florida Man

FEBRUARY 5--A 19-year-old man was arrested Sunday night for singing the lyrics to a profane rap song as he walked on a Florida street.

Christopher Holder was nabbed after a woman complained to police that her two children (ages five and 14) heard Holder repeatedly reciting the words 'mother fucker,' according to a Hernando County Sheriff's Office report, a copy of which you'll find here.

When questioned by deputies, Holder 'immediately began arguing that he did nothing wrong,' and explained that he was merely covering a song by Louisiana rapper Lil' Boosie, whose most recent album, 'Bad Azz,' includes cuts like 'My Nigga' and 'Fuck You.' But Holder, pictured in his mug shot, added that he 'agreed that he did not believe children needed to hear language such as that being hollered down the road.'

Holder was charged with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor. (3 pages)
