The rapper’s mother tells TMZ, Waka surrendered on his own this afternoon “because he wanted to do the right thing and didn’t want to run.”
As we first reported, cops hit Waka’s home on December 16 — and after confiscating all sorts of illegal items, issued an arrest warrant for Waka … who wasn’t home at the time.
Waka’s being held on $31,950 bond — and a hearing is set for tomorrow.
Comedian Micah “Katt” Williams and members of his entourage were arrested yesterday in New York for gun possession. Almost two years to the day of his arrest for the same charges at the LAX airport. The comedian had been a no-show for an appearance of “Late Night with Conan O’Brian” the night before which sparked rumors that he was missing.
The 35-year-old performer was released on $250,000 bail, just minutes before a performance at Carnegie Hall last night.
“You’ll have to forgive me,” he said after taking the stage. “I know I’m moving slower than my normal pace, but I just got out of jail.”
The rush to make the show came after his Conan no-show Wednesday, which forced the TV host to ad-lib for about seven minutes.
Then at around 1:30 a.m. yesterday, cops said they saw a Cadillac belonging to Williams parked in Chelsea without license plates.
When the officers approached, two men started backing away and one said, “I have nothing to do with what’s in that car,” law-enforcement sources said.
Police found three guns in the Cadillac and a loaded weapon in Williams’ Mercedes bus, which was parked behind it, sources said. None of the guns was registered. (Source)
It seems like crazy rumors surface every other day about Katt Williams and now this knee-grow is bringing them all to fruition. I’m soooo disappointed in him right now. How many times you got to get arrested before you figure out that you need to change something??
El DeBarge (born Eldra Patrick DeBarge), former lead singer of the family singing group DeBarge who had mild success as a solo act, was sentenced Wednesday (October 28th) to serve 2 years on a cocaine possession charge. The Los Angeles Judge had little sympathy for the 47 year old former star, who was still on probation for a 2001 cocaine bust, not to mention a series of warrants over the past year for domestic violence, vandalism and drugs, and gave his the stiffest penalty possible.
According to the district attorney’s office, DeBarge also has a second case pending, for violating his probation in 2006 with another drug bust. A hearing in that matter is set for November 10th. DeBarge was picked up by authorities over the weekend on outstanding warrants.
Too bad…so sad. I guess good hair can go wrong as is evident in El’s mugshot photo. There is a 2nd undated mugshot under the cut showing El with short hair and a wide-eyed blank stare. A look that he’ll also be giving his future husband cell-mate. SMH…He’s way to pretty for prison.
Also peep some flashback footage of his group vs. solo career under the cut: Continue Reading…
Chester “Lyfe” Jennings has been served a restraining order filed by his children’s mother, Joy Bounds. Jennings, arrested Sunday night after a high speed chase with Cobb County police, was apparently upset that he couldn’t see his kids. News reports are still surfacing with more details of the situation but I’m sure we will hear lots more before it all over.
Gucci Mane aka Radrick Davis has been sent back to jail and has been sentenced to serve 1 year in Fulton County jail on probation violation charges. The video above is the Atlanta news coverage of his hearing, during which the judge revoked Gucci Mane’s probation because he used drugs & alcohol and didn’t complete the required community service. Dude even showed up drunk for a probation meeting. His excuse? He had just left the studio and had consumed champaign the night before. What a dunce! After he completes his year in jail, Davis will still have 2 1/2 years of probation and will have to serve 600 hours of community service. Some people just deserve to be locked up.
