NEWS: Lil Boosie Confirms Release From Prison! [KingpinTV.net]

Lil Boosie has confirmed that he will be out of prison by the end of February, reports AllHipHop.com.
The Louisiana native is expected to walk free Feb. 13, but when he spoke with publicist Chew Davis, he chose to keep the exact release date quiet due to “safety concerns”.

Boosie, real name Torrence Hatch, was sentenced to eight years on a drug charge he received while behind bars for parole violation, and a murder charge. He was acquitted of murder in 2012 and pleaded guilty to charges stemming from smuggling drugs into the Angola Prison facility where he remains.

Elsewhere in the statement, the 31-year-old made clear that any post-prison gigs not approved by managers Taquari “TQ” Hatch or Johnnie Cabell are fraudulent. “I can’t wait to get out and squash all this s–t,” he promised.

Besides clearing up booking rumors, Boosie also talked new music, stating, “I think the folks are waiting for my return to the game.”

The hundreds of songs he wrote behind are about “real life” and will showcase his growth as “a son, a father, a man,” Boosie said.

NEWS: Suge Knight Gets Sentenced To Probation! [KingpinTV.net]

Who says Suge Knight doesn’t take the law seriously?  

Knight finally made his way to court after authorities issued a warrant for his arrest earlier this week. He was a couple days late, but the 48-year-old appeared in a Southern California courtroom  Thursday (Jan. 23), where he was sentenced to two years probation stemming from last year’s traffic bust for driving on a suspended license.

He will also pay a small fine as part of a plea deal.

Police originally pulled Knight over in September for swerving in and out of lanes, and although it was determined that he was not intoxicated, he still landed in jail because of a previous warrant. That particular warrant was handed down because Knight skipped yet another court date for driving on a suspended license.   

As confusing as his story seems to be getting, the good news is that he has at least cleared up the latest driving-related warrant. On the other hand, since he keeps getting busted in the traffic, it might be time for him to hire a driver, or just stay off the road for a while.

NEWS: Justin Bieber Arrested, The Complete Story & How It Was Bound To Happen! [KingpinTV.net]

Canadian pop star Justin Bieber was arrested in Miami Beach early today and charged with driving under the influence and resisting arrest without violence after police said he had been stopped while “drag racing” down a street before dawn.

Under Florida law, people under the age of 21 are considered driving under the influence if they have a blood-alcohol content of 0.02 or more — a level the 5-foot-9, 140-pound star could reach with one drink.

For a first DUI offence, there is no minimum jail sentence and a maximum of six months, a fine of $250 to $500, and 50 hours of community service — which he would have to serve in the state of Florida. For anyone under 21, there is an automatic six-month licence suspension — which would take effect no matter where in the U.S. the pop star travelled.

A Miami-Dade County judge set Bieber’s bond at $2,500 on Thursday afternoon.

Bieber had been held at the Miami Beach police station and then Miami-Dade county jail since his arrest. The court appearance was conducted by video soon after 1 p.m. ET.

Bieber was nabbed and taken into custody soon after 4 a.m. ET Thursday, police said. 

Run-ins with the law

Bieber, who was born in London, Ont., raised in nearby Stratford, but now lives in the Los Angeles area, has had several incidents with law enforcement officials in the past month. In Miami, he was accused of racing a rented, yellow Lamborghini alongside a red Ferrari driven by a friend identified as rhythm and blues singer Khalil.

Khalil, whose full name is Khalil Amir Sharieff, was also arrested and charged with driving under the influence. His bond was set at $1,000. 

At a morning news conference, Miami Beach police Chief Raymond Martinez said Bieber was “a little belligerent, questioning, using some choice words, why he had been stopped.”

Martinez said Bieber was tested, and acknowledged that he been smoking marijuana and drinking beer, and had taken a prescription medicine. The chief said he didn’t know the nature of the prescription drug. He also said Bieber was using an invalid Georgia driver’s licence.

Bieber’s blood-alcohol levels weren’t released.

Co-operative at station

The racing consisted of going from a standing start on Pine Tree Drive — a residential area where the speed limit is 50 km/h — to approximately 100 km/h, Martinez said. 

“Once he was here at the station, he was very co-operative,” Martinez said. “We did not have any issues with him.”

The arresting officer’s statement, released at about 11 a.m., said Bieber was directed to get out of the Lamborghini once the officer saw his bloodshot eyes and smelled alcohol. Bieber said to him: “Why the f–k are you doing this?”

Once Bieber got out of the car, the officer asked him to put his hands on the vehicle and keep his hands out of his pockets.

“Fearing that the driver might have a weapon or contraband, I asked the driver to place his hands on his vehicle in order to facilitate a cursory pat down for weapons,” the statement says.

Bieber responded: “What the f–k did I do, why did you stop me?”

The pop star was asked again to put his hands on the car. Bieber complied, but soon removed them and turned to face the officer.

Bieber is quoted as then saying: “I ain’t got no f—ing weapons. Why do you have to search me? What the f–k is this about?”

After Bieber had three times failed to keep his hands on the car, the officer took his right hand and put him under arrest. Bieber tried to pull away, but was then taken into custody “with no further incident,” the statement says.

The officer gave Bieber a standardized field sobriety test on a flat, well-lit surface. Bieber “did not perform to standards,” the officer’s statement says.

Bieber had been in the Miami area for a few days and had reportedly been visiting a club on Lincoln Road on Wednesday night.

Earlier reports indicated the musician’s entourage had used their cars to block traffic on Pine Tree Drive at 26th Street, creating a “drag strip” for Bieber.

Open question of deportation
It’s not clear whether he will be deported as a result of this incident. According to U.S. federal law a conviction is not always required.

The Immigration and Nationality Act says any non-U.S. citizen convicted of — or who admits to committing — an act related to a controlled substance — is inadmissible into the country.

According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection “a single DUI conviction is not grounds to deny entry into the U.S; however, multiple DUI convictions or a DUI conviction in combination with other misdemeanour offences can make a person inadmissible and require a waiver prior to entering the United States. A crime of moral turpitude (CIMT) may be grounds to deny entry to the U.S.”

Bieber is currently under investigation in a felony vandalism case after a neighbour reported the pop star threw eggs at his house and caused thousands of dollars of damage.

His arrest in Miami is unlikely to affect the egg-throwing investigation, however, should he be found guilty of vandalism, added to the charges of driving under the influence and resisting arrest, it could put him at risk of being deported.

Nearly a dozen detectives searched Bieber’s home last week for video surveillance and other evidence that could be used to pursue a vandalism charge.

Bieber is also being sued by a former bodyguard who says the singer repeatedly berated him, hit him in the chest and owes him more than $420,000 in overtime and other wages. The case is scheduled to go to trial in Los Angeles next month.

Bad January

On Jan. 4, detectives from the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department found drugs and arrested an associate of the singer during the search of Bieber’s home.

Police noted that Bieber, his security and entourage co-operated fully with the search, but did not make an official statement.

Bieber lives in a gated community in Calabasas, a celebrity enclave northwest of downtown L.A.

Last October, prosecutors declined to charge Bieber after a neighbour complained he drove recklessly through the area.

In November 2012, prosecutors also declined to charge Bieber when the singer was accused of punching and hitting a man after leaving a Calabasas movie theatre.

NEWS: Young Jeezy Arrested For Battery & More! [KingpinTV.net]

Jeezy was arrested in Atlanta late last week for battery, false imprisonment and making terrorist threats in an incident involving his son. 

Jeezy, née Jay Wayne Jenkins, turned himself in to police Friday (Jan. 3) after a warrant was issued for the impending charges stemming from Sept. 2012, when he reportedly attacked his son in a bathroom. The scuffle allegedly included Jeezy throwing his son up against a shower door, punching him in the face, then dragging him into a bedroom to punch him more.

According to law enforcement documents, the 36-year-old also threatened to kill his son, saying, “I will put a bullet in your head right now,” and, “If I could get away with it, I would kill you.”

The minor’s name has not been publicized, but he is likely Jadarius “Lil Jeezy” Jenkins, Jeezy’s 17-year-old son, who the rapper threw a lavish Sweet 16 bash for just two months before their alleged fight.

Meawhile, Jeezy was released from custody after posting $45,000 bond and has neither confirmed nor denied the altercation. He does however believe things will be cleared up, so says his lawyer. “We have no doubt this matter will resolve itself appropriately,” the attorney said. “At this moment, Mr. Jenkins is thankful for the support of his fans and the respect for his family’s privacy.”

**BREAKING NEWS** – Chris Brown Arrested For Assault! [KingpinTV.net]

Chris Brown was arrested in Washington D.C. this morning for FELONY assault after allegedly attacking a man outside a hotel…

Law enforcement sources says … Brown got into an argument with a man outside the W Hotel on  K Street and allegedly punched him once IN THE FACE.  We’re told the man Chris struck never threw a punch.  Sources say Chris and the alleged victim did NOT know each other.

The incident  occurred at about 4:30 AM.

Chris was with his bodyguard, and we’re told he was also arrested.

Our law enforcement sources say Brown did not appear to be under the influence of anything at the time of the incident. 

Brown is currently in custody.  As for the other person, we’re told he’s being evaluated at a D.C. hospital.  Sources say he’s claiming injury.

Law enforcement sources says how the fight was triggered.  Two woman approached Brown in front of the W Hotel and asked to take a picture with him.  As the pic was about to be taken, 2 men rushed over to get in the photo.  We’re told Chris then said, “I’m not into this gay s**t, I’m into boxing,” and threw a punch at the alleged victim.  The fight was then taken to the ground.

Brown is still on probation in the Rihanna beating case and this could be grounds for violating his probation — which means he could be sentenced to prison for nearly 4 years … worst case scenario for him.

Before the incident, Chris had been hosting a party.

NEWS: NFL Player Da’Quan Bowers Arrested At LaGuardia Airport For Carrying A Gun! [KingpinTV.net]

According to Marc Sessler at NFL.com: A loaded .40 caliber firearm was discovered among Da’Quan Bowers’ possessions at a flight check-in counter, per WNBC-TV. The two-year pro was set to board a US Airways flight to Raleigh, N.C. A spokeswoman for the Queen’s District Attorney’s Office confirmed to NFL Network that Bowers has been charged with two counts of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon. Bowers has a court appointment scheduled for Monday night. Bowers, out of Clemson University, started six games as a rookie and none last season for the Bucs, compiling just 13 tackles in 10 appearances. Bowers was activated from the physically unable to perform list in October after tearing his Achilles tendon in May, but has failed to live up to his second-round draft status from 2011.

UPDATE: Bucs general manager Mark Dominik said in a statement to The Tampa Bay Times the team was aware of the situation and was “gathering information.” “We will withhold comment until we know all the facts,” Dominik said in a statement.

NEWS: Jim Jones Arrested For Disorderly Conduct! [KingpinTV.net]

Fair Lawn resident and rap mogul Jim Jones was arrested Wednesday after he “got out of line” with an officer who was handling a parking complaint in front of the Dipset founder’s Ward Street home, police said.

Jones, whose legal name is Joseph, was charged with disorderly conduct and obstruction for refusing to peaceably settle two outstanding warrants for his arrest, Lt. Derek Bastinck said.

Sgt. James Corcoran was in the process of responding to a complaint of a snowbound and illegally parked car outside Jones’ home at the corner of Grunauer Place and Ward Street, when Jones approached him to ask what he was doing, Bastinck said.

Bastinck said when Corcoran proceeded to run Jones’ name through a police database, he found two warrants out for Jones’ arrest — one from Paterson for a motor vehicle violation and one from Fair Lawn for failure to remove snow from his sidewalk.

When Corcoran asked Jones to go with him to police headquarters to settle both oustandings warrants, Jones denied their existence and became disorderly, according to police reports.

“If [people with oustanding warrants] agree, we’ll just have them come down and pay what they owe,” Bastinck said, “but if they don’t agree, they’re placed under arrest.”

As a result of his failure to cooperate, Jones was arrested and taken into police custody, Bastinck said.

He said this was the first time they’d had a problem with the celebrity resident.

DMX should know if he, of all people, drives a car without a driver’s license … he’s going to end up in handcuffs — and that’s exactly what happened this morning in South Carolina. 

The rapper was handcuffed and taken to Spartanburg Detention Center around 2AM … after an officer saw him driving a 1978 Buick (sweet) and pulled him over for allegedly driving without a license.

DMX spoke to the local FOX station as he left the police station and said, “No, I didn’t have a license … put the cuffs on me. Brought me here. I paid the money. Basically, just 5 hours wasted for nothing.”

And there’s this DMX bonus — his 5-month-old daughter was in the back seat during the whole incident.

NEWS: DJ Paul Of Three Six Mafia Arrested For Weapon! [KingpinTV*net]

DJ Paul of Oscar Award-winning group Three 6 Mafia was arrested late yesterday evening (October 14) in New York.

Sources close to the platinum-plus, Memphis producer told AllHipHop.com that the incident unfolded after DJ Paul finished a dinner in Manhattan.

He stopped at a deli on 37th and 9th Avenue to purchase a beer and had the open container in a sleeve, when a police officer began following him.

During a search, DJ Paul informed the officer that he had a taser in his pocket.

The officer handed the taser to an assisting officer, who accidentally discharged the taser.

As DJ Paul was being booked, police officers allegedly took photos with him and singing the chorus to his hit single 2005 single “Stay Fly” featuring Young Buck and Eightball & MJG.

DJ Paul, born Paul Beauregard, was ultimately charged with misdemeanor possession of a weapon and carrying an open container in public.

He is expected to be released later this morning, but the arrest has already impacted his promotional schedule.

DJ Paul is preparing to release a new album, ironically titled A Person of Interest, on October 22.

A scheduled appearance on Power 105.1′s hit morning show “The Breakfast Club” with Charlamagne, Angela Yee and DJ Envy will be rescheduled for later in the week.

As a member of Three 6 Mafia, DJ Paul has produced hits like “2 Way Freak,” and “Sippin’ On Some Syrup.”

His production on the song “It’s Hard Out Here For a Pimp” from the movie “Hustle and Flow” won the Oscar Award for Three 6 Mafia in March of 2006.

NEWS: Chad Ochocinqo Arrested For Headbutting Wife Evelyn Lozada! [TekniqueTheKingpin*com]

NFL star Chad Johnson aka Chad Ochocinqo was arrested last night (Saturday) for domestic violence … allegedly against new wife Evelyn Lozada, one of the stars of VH1’s “Basketball Wives.” Law enforcement sources tell us Johnson allegedly head-butted Lozada during an argument, and when cops arrived to the scene, Lozada had lacerations on her forehead. Our sources say Lozada has been at the hospital for several hours. According to our sources, the fight started when Lozada found a receipt for condoms in the center of the couple’s Maserati and confronted Johnson about it. A verbal argument ensued. We’re told at some point during the argument, Johnson head-butted Lozada. According to reports, Johnson told police he butted heads with Lozada by accident. Johnson is reportedly still in custody and will have to go before a judge before he can be released. Johnson and Lozada were married last month after Johnson proposed in November 2010 with a massive 10-carat diamond ring.

UPDATE: Johnson is still at the Davie, FL police station, but will eventually be transferred to a county jail facility. Authorities tell us he will remain in custody tonight, and since there are no bond judges scheduled to work Sunday … it’s entirely possible Chad will be cooling off behind bars until Monday morning. Johnson was also ordered not to have contact with Lozada, which is common practice in domestic violence cases. A rep for the Miami Dolphins released a statement on the arrest, saying, “We are aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering all the relevant information.”

UPDATE #2:
Add unemployment to Chad Johnson’s list of problems — the Miami Dolphins have reportedly cut their star wide receiver … 24 hours after his arrest for domestic violence. Sources close to the veteran player say … he had a meeting with Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin about an hour ago. Must not have gone well — FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer is reporting the team dropped Johnson.

UPDATE #3: VH1 has now cancelled the reality show “Ev & Ocho” due to the recent allegations.

UPDATE #4: As of the morning of Aug. 14th, Evelyn has filed for divorce citing “irretrievably broken” as the reason.

NEWS: Former Lil Wayne Bandmate B.G. Sentenced to 14 Years in Prison! [TekniqueTheKingpin*com]

B.G., the former Cash Money Records rapper and a member of the group Hot Boys with Juvenile and Lil Wayne, was sentenced to 14 years in prison (as well as three years of supervised release following the completion of his sentence) after pleading guilty to two counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm and one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice, MTV reports.

The rappers, real name, Christopher Dorsey, was arrested back in 2009 along with two others when police stopped him in New Orleans and found three guns and a loaded magazine in the car. Two of the guns had previously been reported stolen, while it also turned out that the car had been stolen from an Alamo rental car parking lot.

Dorsey was convicted three times on felony drug charges between 1998 and 2003.

One of the other men arrested, 20-year-old Demounde Pollard, claimed that the guns were his, but police later determined that he did so at Dorsey’s request. Both Pollard and the third man, Jerod Fedison, pleaded guilty when the state criminal case moved to federal court, with Pollard recieving a 30-month prison sentence and Fedison receiving 20 years due to previous convictions.

During the trial, prosecutors attempted to link the MC to Telly Hankton and Walter Porter, two of New Orleans’ most high-profile murderers, whom Dorsey mentioned in online videos. The prosecution pointed to the clips as proof of his criminal activity in hopes of securing a 25-year prison term.

Dorsey’s attorney, however, said his client was simply “posturing and marketing” in the video, adding that while “many people would frown upon his art . . . it is art.”

U.S. District Judge Ginger Berrigan said Dorsey’s “career has just been deplorable and sad,” and added that she believed the videos “may have contributed to the murders of young people” in New Orleans.
