Slip-N-Slide Rapper Plies Arrested in Florida for Alleged Club Shooting
A nightclub shooting on Sunday (July 2) in Gainsville, Florida left five people wounded and Slip-N-Slide affiliate Plies, and several members of his entourage, under arrest. According to reports from the Gainsville Sun, a dispute broke out at 1:45 a.m. at the 238 West Nightclub when Plies’ set cut into the performance time allotted for Louisiana rapper Lil Boosie, who was also headlining at the venue that night. When words were exchanged and a scuffle broke out, a group of men on stage allegedly pulled out firearms and began shooting into the crowd of more than 1,000 concertgoers. At least six rounds were fired into the audience and five people were shot, although none of their injuries were life threatening. Immediately after the shots were fired, Plies and three other men allegedly fled the club, but were detained by Gainesville Police and placed under arrest.
