Kansas City rapper and Blue Springs native Tech N9ne has a court date scheduled for July.

Lee’s Summit police stopped the rapper Wednesday while he was reportedly speeding in a Ferrari F430, a vehicle owned by his business partner, who was with him.

When the officer pulled the pair over at about 12:50 p.m. Wednesday outside a restaurant on Douglas Street, police ran IDs and discovered a warrant for the singer’s arrest.

The rapper, whose real name is Aaron Yates, had an outstanding warrant for failing to appear in Blue Springs court. The charge was for placement of posters on private and public property.

According to Troy Pharr, spokesperson for police, the rapper reportedly hired two men to hang up about 75 posters along Missouri 7, near Interstate 70 and on U.S. 40 on Oct. 27, 2009.

A court date of Nov. 4, 2009, was scheduled and he did not show up.

Pharr said hanging posters in that manner is a violation of the city’s ordinance.

According to other media reports, the rapper on Wednesday posted on Twitter “I’m getting arrested” and followed it with a photo of an officer helping him into the back of the cruiser.

He later posted a $300 bond and was released.

Both the rapper and his partner were reported to have said they did not know about the Blue Springs charge or the warrant and that others had hung the poster.

The rapper indicated in the same article that he and his partner intended to go to Blue Springs Police Department in an attempt to clear the charges.

As of 3 p.m. Thursday, Pharr said neither had showed up.

A court date was scheduled for 8:30 a.m. July 17.
