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.
