After being outed as having once worked as an informant for the feds and being dropped from Grand Hustle for not disclosing that information…everyone in the hip-hop world was wondering where he was and why was he so quiet. Some speculated that he was in a witness protection program somewhere, but actually Cedric “Alfamega” Zellars was sitting in a hospital in custody of the Atlanta Police Department after suffering injuries during an arrest:
The performer was arrested April 29 on felony gun and obstruction charges following a wild confrontation with cops. According to an Atlanta Police Department report, a copy of which you’ll find below, police found a stolen .40 caliber pistol in Zellars’s SUV during a search of the vehicle following a traffic stop (the Sig Sauer handgun was loaded and had a round in the chamber). After cops discovered the gun, Zellars became “combative and non-compliant” and sought to flee. Officer Antonio Blasini pepper sprayed Zellars in the face, but the substance “had no immediate effect.”
Cops chased Zellars to a nearby parking garage, where he was struck with a police baton, again to no effect. In a bid to shake his pursuers, Zellars weaved through parked cars and climbed over the garage wall, jumping “25-30 feet to the ground.” The landing was not a smooth one. The fall “resulted in an injury that appeared to be pieces of bone protruding from his ankle,” cops noted. Zellars, pictured in the mug shot above, was booked into a Fulton County jail, where he remained until Saturday when he made bail.
Zellars, a predicate felon, has yet to be indicted on the gun and obstruction charges. However, if the gun case were to be handled by federal prosecutors, Zellars could easily be facing more than a decade in prison. (Source)
