TMZ reports Thursday this week R&B balladeer Tank was arrested in L.A.  Now of course he didn’t stay there as he was on the air this morning, hosting the Steve Harvey Moring Show, but the 38-year old did have a brief run-in with the LAPD.  According to TMZ, shortly after tweeting a birthday shout out to girlfriend Zena Foster, he was pulled over.  The singer whose real name is Durrell Babbs was driving in a Van Nuys, Calif. Suburb and caught the attention of police because he was talking on a cell phone, a huge no, no in Cali.

Driving and talking on a cellphone is typically punishable with a fine, but Tank allegedly refused to hand over his license and his lack of cooperation led to him being handcuffed and taken into custody.  The singer was charged with failing to comply with authorities, posted bail and was released.

On a brighter note BET reports Tank will be performing live tonight at Bella Noche’ in Baton Rouge for a release party celebrating his Stronger LP and Ginuwine is gonna be in the building too.  For more details on that, listen to Tha Wire below.

In other good news, Tank and his longtime girlfriend Zena Foster are expecting their second child according to Hiphollywood.  The two have a six year old little girl and son welcome a baby boy.  Tank shared the good news on  Instagram back in July with a picture of Zena and the caption, “My baby @zenafoster and our baby boy due 1/1/15! God is good!”

Reporters with HipHollywood managed to get a sit-down with the crooner and asked if wedding bells are in the near future and this was his response, “I’m waiting on the Lord to tell me when that’s the right time. You can’t force anything like that,” he told us. “What we are doing now is we are building a great friendship and a great relationship. We can only go higher with that. I love her and we will see where that goes.”
