Remy Ma Pleads Not Guilty to Attempted Murder, Free on Bail

remy11.jpgRemy Ma turned herself into police on Saturday evening (July 14) and was charged with attempted murder, assault and weapons possession. The Bronx native had been wanted in connection with the early Saturday morning shooting of Makeda Barnes-Joseph in Manhattan’s trendy Meatpacking District. The Associated Press reports that the two women had been hanging out together at a local establishment called the Pizza Bar, when they got into an argument over missing money. Witnesses say that Remy shot Barnes-Joseph in the torso before jumping into a blue Cadillac Escalade, which she then crashed a few blocks away. The Pizza Bar’s management has issued a statement denying that any altercation took place inside their establishment. Remy was arraigned on Sunday (July 15) and pleaded not guilty to all of the charges. She was then sent to New York’s Riker’s Island jail after a judge approved the prosecutor’s request for bail. According to NY1, the rapper was released after posting the 250,000 bond. “I ask everyone to keep an open mind,” said her attorney, Scott Leemon. “Things are not always as they seem.”
