According to police documents, D.J. was placed in handcuffs at the station … before he was booked on a charge of failure to appear.
At one point during processing and fingerprinting, he took a mug shot … where he was seen smiling ear-to-ear.
We broke the story, D.J. was originally hit with one misdemeanor charge of breach of peace in the case back in March … after authorities alleged he threw a brick at ESPN’s headquarters.
Officials accused D.J. of writing a note on the object that read, in part, “It’s about time you all realeyes the affect media has on all family members.”
“Since you’re a world wide leader maybe you could lead how media and messages are delivered brick by brick. Clean it up!”
D.J. was slated to have a hearing in the case on July 7 … but he didn’t appear, leading to the warrant. He’s now due back in court for further proceedings next week.
