Yung Joc Issues Statement Denying Wrongdoing, Looks to Clear His Name

Yung Joc, who was arrested earlier this week when a weapon was discovered in his carry on luggage at Cleveland’s Hopkins International Airport, has issued a statement denying any wrongdoing on his part. Joc, was taken into custody and charged with carrying a concealed weapon after authorities discovered a semi-automatic pistol and armor piercing ammunition when he attempted to board a flight on Monday. He insists that he did not know the gun was in his luggage and has vowed to clear his name. “I have the utmost respect for the laws of this country and would never deliberately commit an act that would jeopardize my freedom, my family, or my career,” the rapper said in the statement. “I’ve worked very hard to achieve my goals, and it’s unfortunate that this current situation has garnered more attention than the many donations I’ve made and the charitable work I’ve done with various organizations.” He went on to proclaim his love for the United States and expressed his faith in the judicial system. Joc was reprimanded by Cleveland Municipal Court Judge Michael Ryan on Wednesday (December 26) after he showed up several hours late to his arraignment hearing. Joc is due back in Cuyahoga County court on January 25.

  • barbarian at the gate

    The whole thing smells of a publicity stunt & what the fuck was this knucklehead thinking showing up hours late to his arraignment?

    Stupid to tempt fate even further, especially when the system gets stuck having to decide how hard to put the zap on your hip-hop head.

    Reading statements written by his lawyer won’t cover bullshit behavior.
