British Man Arrested After Claiming To Be Nicki Minaj During Police Call


A 23 year old man was arrested in the city of Belfast recently, picked up by police after he claimed to be Hip Hop superstar Nicki Minaj during a call he made to his local police station on Christmas Day.


Pills’N’Poltergeists below…

Sky News reports:

Steven Brown, 23, from Cairn Walk in Crumlin, Co Antrim, made two calls in breach of a previous ASBO banning him from using the emergency number.

Belfast High Court heard a man first called at 10.15 am on Christmas Day claiming two men were making threats to kill him but was too intoxicated to provide further information.

Five minutes later, the same man rang 999 again and told operators he wanted to cancel the first call, the prosecution said.

It was during this second call that the man claimed to be the rapper Minaj and said there was a poltergeist in his house.

When police arrested him, Brown did not deny making the calls and told officers he felt there really was an emergency when he dialled the number.

The prosecution said he had recently been released “after serving a sentence for offences of a similar nature” and that he was an alcoholic.

A defence barrister said Brown had just been released from hospital, was taking medication and had consumed alcohol, against the advice of doctors.

The judge released Brown on his own bail of £250, banned him from possessing and consuming alcohol and from dialling 999, except in an emergency.

Lord Justice Coghlin, who also imposed a 10pm-7am curfew, said: “This man is essentially a nuisance, which no doubt is a product of his alcoholism.”


The 23 year old’s surprising move comes before Minaj touches down in his city on April 1st for her ‘The Pinkprint Tour’, launched to support her latest studio album of the same name.

Unfortunately, this wouldn’t mark the first time the rapper’s has been linked to the peculiar.

In 2012, a 25 year old man named Matthew Scargill broke his girlfriend’s jaw when she criticised the ‘I Lied‘ rapper’s performance style in front of him.

After watching her slam the star, he followed her out of their living room into their bedroom where he punched her in the face, breaking her jaw after accusing her of being jealous of Grammy-nominated star.

The Mirror explains:

Ms Towey said she didn’t like Minaj ‘because of the faces she pulls’, sending Scargill, who she had been dating for eight weeks, into a sudden fury.

She told police: “Matthew just switched and started shouting at me and going mental, saying it’s because I’ve got nothing, and I’m jealous of her.”

Brendon O’Leary, defending, said that Scargill had not realised ‘the extent of the injuries he inflicted’ on the victim with his punch when he left injured and without her phone.

He said the workshop engineer had ‘committed an offence which is completely out of character for him’.

Mr O’Leary added: “He deeply regrets his actions, he wishes to apologise.

“He fully accepts what he did was wrong, he fully accepts that he can’t act that way, he wants and accepts punishment.

“He accepts the injury he caused her was a serious and grievous one.”

Judge Iain Hamilton, sentencing, rejected Mr O’Leary’s suggestion that Scargill could be punished with a suspended sentence and an order to pay the victim compensation.

Sending him down, Judge Hamilton told shame-faced Scargill: “She sustained a broken jaw that had to be fixed with a plate requiring four metal screws to be inserted.

“She had to have three teeth removed, had stitches in her mouth and cheek and was in hospital for four days while that procedure was carried out.

“It’s had a significant continuing impact on her life, she still suffers numbness and difficulties eating, she describes being depressed and withdrawn, and she lost the place at college which she had been celebrating that night.”

      He probably hadn’t had a shower for five weeks, and the smell of his unwashed balls reminded him of Flopnika Garbaj’s stink pusssy, so he thought he was her. The stankness of Flopnika’s disgusting pusssy is a powerful drug that makes people delirious!

  2. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) January 2, 2015

    I’m convinced, anyone with the last name BROWN is automatic trouble and needs to be on watch (i.e. Chris Brown, Bobby Brown, Foxy Brown etc).

    • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 2, 2015

  4. TheElusiveLamb January 2, 2015

    Poor souls. I’ve met Mariah Carey enough times for her to recognize me and seen her in over 20 live concerts/tour dates, but that still doesn’t mean I don’t know that she gives zero f**** about me. People take stanning way TOO FAR. If they talked about Jesus, they are going to talk your fav.

  5. ok January 2, 2015

    lmao and they said Nicki fans are little children lmao a 22yr with a girlfriend not gay and 25yr man…..
    wait lmao at the second story!!! the girl need more punching… why should she make fun of how Nicki pulls her face?
    to beat up a woman to the extent of injuring her is more than stanning
    that guy is seriously obsessed with Nicki Minaj,
    I think the stanning is to much…
    I’m happy at least Nicki got pple that will Stan for her and can even beat their parents for her!!!!

    on the other note ‘Only’ has now sold more than gold in the us….‘i still get certifications from my records that are urban’- Nicki’s lyrics

    I’ve been seeing Nig. artists like 2face(legendary), ice prince(my best African rapper), chidimna(trash but loves Nicki Minaj) and the legendary actress omotola as ambassador for airtel here lately

    Lmao wtf is wrong with people reminds me of a girl i used to be friends with. Remember the rihanna-chris brown situation .. a girl from my old school who used to be a victim of violence by her ex (also her mom used to be a victim of violence by her dad) was saying rihanna deserved it because she was a cb fan and saying that cb can hit anyone he wants because hes hot and even went back to her ex (who f***** her up again) reffering to him as her own chris… yeah my english writing sucks its not my first language

  12. Ciara January 3, 2015
