Fabolous Charged with Gun Possession, Freed on $15,000 Bail

fabolous2.jpgFabolous was arraigned on 5 counts of criminal possession of a weapon in a Manhattan courtroom on Wednesday (October 18) and subsequently released from police custody after posting $15,000 bail. According to the New York Daily News, one of the rapper’s associates posted the bail in cash, pulling 15 stacks of bills worth $1000 each from a briefcase he was carrying.

In related news, Boston Celtics guard Sebastian Telfair was reportedly robbed of a chain worth $50,000 after leaving Justin’s, the same restaurant Fabolous was leaving when he was shot. The robbery occurred moments before the shooting took place, and New York police are investigating a connection between the two events. They went so far as to place Fabolous and his 3 co-defendants in a lineup to see if Telfair recognized any of the men as the person who robbed him. Telfair did not identify any of the men as the robber and commented that he has told the NYPD everything he knows and is finished with the incident.

Similarly, Fabolous has been unable to identify the man who shot him in the leg early Tuesday morning. His attorney, Alberto Ebanks, commented, “It was dark, and it happened very quickly, and he certainly didn’t expect it to happen…if he knew who shot him and could identify him, he certainly would.” He also suggested that the same person who shot his client may have robbed Telfair in an attempt to target high profile celebrities.

    That’s messed up. Fabolous might have been looking for a little bit of publicity with this one. He gets shot around the time there is talk of his upcoming record. Not only did he get shot he also was arrested. Twice the publicicty that he needs right now. There must be a lot of horrible trigger men out there, because all of these rappers/whoevers getting shot, and they are all non serious injuries. It makes no sense.

    ^ oh wait, he’s not a gangster, nevermind, so it probably wouldn’t apply to him ( not in a bad way)

  • BlacKnight

    I doubt this was a publicity stunt…further more, it was said that Fab’s new album wouldn’t be out until mid-07′…so how in the hell would this shit help out an album that won’t even drop for another what…possibly 5-6 months?? Get the F**k outta here, Fab was probably in the wrong place at the wrong time…so ya’ll telling me that Sebastian Telfair hired someone to rob him of his $50.000 chain for aa got damn publicty stunt?? Again, Get the F**k outta here!

    All I’m saying is Fab is dumb as hell. Now they are saying that one of Fab’s crew got Sebastian for his chain. I thought fab took care of his people why are they snatching chains. On top of everything Fab was the one to get shot in the leg. COme on guy. I am from the country, but I can tell you one thing if one of my people was shooting at you they wouldn’t hit you in the leg. Real talk.

  • CALIMOVEMENT

    Fools believe everything the police say….just cause someone took a chain and walked back into the club and sat down in the VIP dont mean he was a part of Faboulous crew…..
