Boosie Badazz Claims Biloxi PD Stole $1 Million Of His Jewelry – Tha Wire
Today in Tha Wire, several reports came out this morning that Boosie Badazz and his entourage had a major incident at the Edgewater Mall, Biloxi yesterday (Tuesday April 11, 2017.) Things are still a bit sketchy, but the 34-year old rapper took to his Instagram page to try and bring some clarity to the situation. First, TMZ reported the rapper was approached by a white mall security guard, while walking from one store to another. The guard was extremely aggressive and told the star and his crew, "Boy, get out my damn mall, boy!"
In his post, Boosie, whose real name is Torrence Hatch, confirmed that's exactly what happened. He said he didn't even wanna fool with the guy and told his people, "look this guy is racist, lets just go." The guard reportedly followed them into a Dillards store and continued to holler at them to leave. Boosie said at one point the guy corners him, and his crew in the back of the store and began spraying them with pepper spray. One of the people sprayed was his niece, and his was really upset about it, because she is pregnant. Not only that, but the rapper says the entire incident was racially motivated.
It don't end there. TMZ says the drama continued when Boosie and his crew tried to leave. Soon as they pulled off, his van was stopped by Biloxi police. Mississippi's SunHarold reports, among those arrested: Ivy Givens, 19, of Baton Rouge; Sedale Coleman, 32, of Tucker, Georgia; Patrick Tolbert, 26, of Mobile and a juvenile who was not named. All five men were hit with a laundry list of charges, from simple assault on a police officer, a felony, to simple assault on the security officer.
What's really crazy Boosie says in the confusion, one of the Biloxi officers stole a bag full of jewelry out of his van. He claims his jewelry was no where to be found after his friends were arrested, and he's holding the Biloxi Police Dept. directly responsible for the theft. The star says the jewels are worth more than $1 million dollars. Biloxi PD's Lt. Christopher De Back, issued a statement on the alleged jewelry heist saying police found no jewelry. Vincent Creel, a spokesman for the City of Biloxi claims they had no idea the mall incident even took place, and no knowledge of missing jewelry.
Below listen as Boosie tells the entire story in his own words:
This is really crazy. I'm sure more details will come out in the coming days. I will do my best to keep you posted. Hoping Boosie's niece is okay. We gotta do better America. For all things entertainment check out Tha Wire daily, only on The People's Station 107 Jamz.
