The New York police announced through a press release that they had arrested Roddy Ricch, who was in possession of a weapon.
Unaccustomed to being talked about on the judicial level, Roddy Ricch however had to do with the police over the weekend. In a press release, the NYPD announced that it had arrested the 23-year-old rapper from Compton on Saturday.Police officers actually responded to a call from security guards at Citi Field, home of the New York Mets baseball franchise, where the Governors Ball Music Festival was taking place. The latter have indeed spotted a weapon in Roddy Ricch’s vehicle, which was to occur a little later in the evening, at one of the checkpoints set up. The police, who did not take long to arrive on the spot, then proceeded to the arrest of Roddy Ricch as well as that of 2 men, Michael Figueroa and Carlos Collins, who were with the rapper in the vehicle. Faced with this news, the organizers of the festival will quickly announce on social networks that the author of The Box could not ensure its performance, without however saying more about the reasons for this last minute cancellation.
In the process, the police will carry out a search of the vehicle and will indeed find the weapon, which was also loaded, as well as several large capacity chargers. So many elements that will lead to the placement in pre-trial detention and the indictment of the 3 men, suspected of 4 counts including those of “criminal possession of a weapon” or “illegal possession of a large magazine ability”. Last night, a video showing Roddy Ricch free and wearing a big smile alongside his lawyer was however published on social networks. We can therefore imagine that the same fate was reserved for his 2 friends (unless they are wanted) and that a trial will take place within a few months in order to settle this case.
