More details about Barnes unfortunate legal situation + his video apology to all his newfound fans below…
Barnes was reportedly released on his own recognizance and sent to JPD to handle the shoplifting charge. He is due for a hearing in Ridgeland court June 23rd.
Television crews interviewed Barnes on the scene of an accident after a police chase involving a Jackson Police car Monday. His quotes of “he twist around like a tornado, girl” and “on my way to get a piece of burger” gained national attention Wednesday.
It was his appearance on the news that got Barnes nabbed on the shoplifting charge after Swell-O-Phonic owner Ron Chane said Barnes was the man in his surveillance footage wanted for shoplifting.
An Instagram post by Chane’s Swell-O-Phonic five weeks ago appears to show Barnes with gold hair and a matching gold shirt while imploring for more information in a shoplifting case. A manager at the store reportedly confirmed the suspect in the post is in fact Barnes and the warrant was issued for shoplifting.
After notification of his arrest warrant, Barnes hit the net to apologize to all of his newfound fans with the following video…
I apologize for the things that’s going around on the social media about me. However like I said, nobody’s not perfect, everybody makes mistakes. But at the same time I do keep God first and I want you guys to know that everything will work out for the best.
At the same time let the negativity continue to come because without negativity we cannot do positivity.
The store that is accusing Barnes of shoplifting also shared their thoughts on his arrest, stating:
So sad… too bad. It’s almost like those reality stars that go on tv knowing they have a criminal past. SMH…
