Plies Back in Hot Water Over 2006 Shooting

Plies may have escaped prison time in a 2006 Gainesville shooting, but five victims from the attack are taking the Florida rapper to task in a civil suit.

As previously reported, Plies was hit with a $10 million lawsuit in 2008, but the suit has since been amended, adding the Southern hitmaker’s brother Ronell “Big Gates” Levatte and their Big Gates record label to the complaint.

According to the Associated Press, the amended suit was filed yesterday (March 3) in Alachua County Circuit Court. The victims now allege that the “Bust it Baby” MC has profited from the shooting incident by gaining street credibility.

Plies and several members of his entourage were arrested back in July of 2006 after shots were fired into the crowd of now-defunct Club 238 and injuring five concertgoers.

Apparently bullets were exchanged when Plies got into an argument with Lil Boosie, who was scheduled to perform after him onstage. Plies was sentenced to three years probation but his brother had to serve that time behind bars and wasn’t released until last April.

As of press time Plies has yet to comment on the suit. —William Nilly

    Whether or not you’re a celebrity, you gotta face the repercussions of what you did.

  • daydeezy

    @Kid Pistol… what planet do you live on when you can say or think ” Whether or not you’re a celebrity, you gotta face the repercussions of what you did” that will never change and if you had money-money well long money you would want and will get the same treatment. so dont act like you a tell -on-yo-self-azz-dude… re-enactment Judge says kid pistol you have to serve 5 years for attemted murder or pay the homey and get probation ,,, kid pistol says no judge i will not have it i want to deal with the repercussions and want to serve the full time for what i did. Will never happen ….

    Haha. Wow. You just took my whole comment to a whole new level. Repercussions is the impact that happens after an event, whether that be probation or full-time. He’s gotta handle his biz either way. Stop putting so much thought into s**t guy.

    Could this be the reason son started doing the moral thing at his shows recently, which were all greatly recorded and released virally? You know, the college money, the grand giveaway, the ‘go home you’re too young for this’ shows?

    Now he’s gotta spend money for big lawyer fees while he’s gotta show he don’t have 10 mil and isn’t as rich as he looks/says with all the jewels and cash stacks.

    Oh the irony…
