Gun Charges Against Fabolous Dismissed
A Manhattan judge dismissed weapons charges against Fabolous on Thursday (June 14) after prosecutors admitted that they could not prove that either of two handguns belonged to the rapper. According to the Associated Press, Fab was present at the courthouse this morning, but opted to wait outside the courtroom after hearing that the charges would be thrown out. “He’s more relieved than happy,” said Fab’s lawyer, Alberto Ebanks. “He should never have been here in the first place.” The Brooklyn native was arrested on October 17 after he was shot in front of Sean “Diddy” Combs’ restaurant, Justin’s, just moments after Boston Celtics guard Sebastian Telfair was robbed of a $50,000 necklace. Following the shooting, the rapper got into a Dodge Magnum with three associates and headed for the hospital. The car was pulled over by police and a search turned up two loaded handguns.
